Nairobi - A number of MPs have said they will defect from their current parties to comply with the law even as they expressed confidence that they will pass a Bill extending party hopping to January next year, Daily Nation reports.
Presidential aspirants affected by the deadline of officially joining new parties they have been promoting were locked in meetings with their allies to find ways of pushing through the Elections (Amendment) Bill which was stopped in its tracks on the floor of the House by three MPs.
Orange Democratic Movement’s John Pesa (Migori), Nicolas Gumbo (Rarieda) and Martin Ogindo (Rangwe) blocked debate on the Bill, triggering anxiety among MPs.
