Commission on Implementation of the Constitution CIC Chairman Charles Nyachae wants both senate and parliament to expedite the process of implementing the Duale Bill and the Constitutional Amendment Bill that seek to fast track the implementation of two-thirds gender rule.
Nyachae said the Duale bill is the best proposal so far drafted by the eleventh parliament.
Addressing journalists Thursday in Nairobi, the commission chair said if passed the bill will cater for marginalized groups.
Nyachae wondered why Bill which was tabled by the National Assembly Majority Leader Aden Duale and went through the first reading on July is taking too long to go into the second reading.
The commission chair said the commission has scrutinized the bill and deems it fit.
At the same time the commission urged the parliament to further put in place the necessary framework to ensure the implementation of the principle that not more than two thirds of members of the National Assembly and the Senate are of one gender.
The Duale bill seeks to have additional women in leadership if the election does not meet the threshold.
His sentiments come at a time when the commission’s term is set to expire in ten days, after the completion of their five year Constitutional term.
