Unease Among MCAs Over Delayed Gazettement By IEBC

6

The Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission is yet to gazette nominated members of  the county assembly making it difficult for the County  Assemblies to convene for first sitting.

The County Government Amendment  Act 2020 states that the County Assembly will only be fully constituted with the presence of special elect members.

After the gazettement of the nominated MCAs they the governor will then gazette the date for the  first sitting.

“Whenever a new county assembly is elected ,the governor by notice in the gazette shall appoint (a) the place of sitting within the county as set out in the third schedule..(b) the date of the first sitting of the new county assembly which shall not be more that thirty days from the date on which the county assembly Shall be fully constituted as provided for under section 7A.” The  Act  reads in part.

Meanwhile the Assembly Clerk Edward Gichana  says that preparations are almost ending to fully receive the new members.

“We are just waiting the commission to gazette them once that is done we shall be good to go nevertheless we are well prepared to receive that group and for the elected members we in the   induction process and  everything is moving on smoothly.

After the swearing-in of members, the committees will be constituted, which will then vet executive nominees who includes CECMs,chief officers and County Attorney.
