The president has been categorical of the report saying it will address the perennial antagonism of the general elections by being inclusive. The document has recommended an expanded executive with a prime minister and two deputies .

It has also suggested an increase of county allocations from the national budget from 15- 35 percent . The proposal has been well received by  many governors especially those in their first term .

The launch of the report will follow a collection of a million signatures which will be checked by the IEBC and there after subjected to the 47  county assemblies.

If passed by at least 24 counties ,the report will be handed to parliament for debate before a referendum is conducted .
