Members of the National Assembly will on 29th of December hold special sittings at parliament buildings.

According to National Assembly Speaker Justin Muturi, the morning sittings will start at 10am and the afternoon sittings at 2.30pm.

He says the purposes of the next Wednesday sittings include the conveyance of any messages from President Uhuru Kenyatta, the National Executive, and or the Senate.

There will also be tabling of papers with statutory timelines and consideration in the Committee of the Whole House.

The speaker then listed the second reading, Committee of the Whole House, and Third Reading of the Public Procurement and Asset Disposal.

Further, the Members of Parliament will debate the Political Party Amendment Bill.

This comes after the debate on the controversial bill was on Wednesday suspended indefinitely, after the MPs differed during the debate.

The bill was tabled by Kipipiri Member of Parliament Amos Kimunya who is also National Assembly Majority Leader which provides for a deadline of six months to form a coalition before an election.

The bill has seen allies of ODM leader Raila Odinga rubbish claims that they failed in Parliament during its debate.

Speaking in Homa Bay County on Thursday,  a section of ODM MPs dismissed reports that Deputy President William Ruto’s allies won the debate.

Homa Bay Woman Rep Gladys Wanga, said the parliamentary sitting proved that DP Ruto has no support at the National Assembly.

However, leaders allied to Ruto, say the suspension of the Bill,  was a big win for Kenyans.

South Mugirango Member of Parliament Sylvanus Osoro said they will not support a bill that seek to undermine the rights of Kenyans.
