The Jubilee Party has radically toned down its opposition to constitutional amendments demanded by the Opposition, the National Super Alliance (NASA). Just 1⃣ week after the repeat presidential elections won by President Uhuru Kenyatta, Jubilee Party has welcomed NASA's calls for reforms, saying they would address the current political agitations❗
The thawing of their hardline position could likely bring to reality a possibility of changes to the much-acclaimed 2010 Constitution. On Tuesday, religious leaders under the ☔umbrella of the National Council of Churches of Kenya (NCCK) called for change in law to create the position of Prime Minister and 2⃣ deputies, alongside the establishment of an office for the leader of opposition.
NCCK Secretary-General Peter Karanja 🔈 the additional posts would help reduce the tension experienced in the country each election's year and at the same time promote cohesiveness.
On Wednesday, NASA also laid down a 6⃣ point-plan that will among others lead to a possible change of the 2010 Constitution on the structure of the Executive. Key among their proposals is the creation of the position of Prime Minister and his deputies and an enhanced office of the official opposition leader. Yesterday, National Assembly Majority Leader Aden Duale said Jubilee was ready to support👍 minimum reforms to the Constitution to address some of the issues raised by the Opposition.
In its proposals, NCCK said the country requires additional leadership positions to solve problems of the winner-takes-it-all presidential system.
What do Duta readers think about this suggested political reform?
