The leadership of the House powerful PAC and the Public Investments Committee is left as a reserve of the opposition in parliament.

Both PAC and PIC are watchdog committees in the National Assembly.

However, Jubilee will maintain its majority representation in the watchdog committees.

Last month, NASA's National Resistance Movement's (NRM) parliamentary wing submitted its House leadership members to National Assembly Speaker Justin Muturi.
