MPs ordered to consider petition seeking to introduce term limit for all elective posts
A Kenyan has filed a petition in Parliament seeking to introduce a term limit for all elective posts in the country.
According to Jonah Gachuki, the petitioner, Article 142 and 180 of the Constitution only apply the term of office of the President and County Governors, respectively to two terms which are discriminatory and needed to be amended.
“… the provisions do not apply to the following other elective offices; The Depeuty President, the Speaker of the National Assembly, the Speaker of the Senate, Member of Parliament, Deputy Governors and Members of County Assemblies.
The National Assembly Speaker Justine Muturi has since ordered the Departmental Committee on Justice and Legal Affairs to consider the petition and report its findings to the House and to the petitioner within Standing Order 227(2).
