MPs at risk of being barred from running

26 November 2012, 08:53

Nairobi - The Standard reports that, with only 14 weeks to the General Election, Members of Parliament with court cases could be barred from running unless the matters are concluded in their favour by January 4 next year.

The greatest fear of the 12 legislators is that given the way courts operate it is foreseeable that some of the cases might not be determined in the remaining period. In that case they could be blocked from running for any political office in line with the high integrity standards set by Chapter Six of the Constitution.

There will, however, be debate on whether such a decision would be fair as they would not have been judged guilty or innocent until the courts give their rulings.
