Jubilee MPs call for dissolution of Parliament

Jubilee MPs petition dissolution of Parliament

Parliament building

A group of Jubilee lawmakers want Parliament to be dissolved over what they termed as an not conducive political environment.

The Members of Parliament led by Sirisia legislator John Waluke said they were collecting signatures to facilitate the dissolution.

Mr Waluke stated that they were asking MPs to append their signatures arguing that Parliament would not conduct any meaningful legislation in the current situation.

Signatures collection

About 85 per cent of the MPs are of the idea and some have signed the petition,” Waluke stated.

However, the Sirisia legislator did not produce any evidence to back his claims.

Waluke also stated that the continued pressure to push out Deputy President William Ruto from contesting the presidency in 2022 was not conducive for the party and country.

Demands

The MP asked the Jubilee leadership to make public the forces pushing former party vice-chairman David Murathe to denounce the DP candidacy.

The country has gone into politics full throttle, there will be no time for development, daggers have been drawn and the only way to quell the pressure is for Parliament to be dissolved and members seek a fresh mandate,” Waluke stated.

During an interview on Sunday with KTN, Murathe said he will sue to block Ruto’s candidature on the 2022 elections and will form a Stop-Ruto-Movement.
