The ODM leader Raila Odinga’s cousin George Midiwo and former Wajir Woman Representative Fatuma Gedi have been chosen for senior Commission on Revenue Allocation positions.
The two were chosen to represent the minority in Parliament by the Azimio La Umoja One Kenya alliance, according to a notification by National Assembly Speaker Moses Wetangula.
Midiwo applied but was not chosen by Azimio, whilst Gedi lost the election to join the East African Legislative Assembly.
Gedi, a significant Azimio official, failed in her campaign to retain the Wajir county seat in the most recent election.
Additionally, it offers comfort to the Jubilee party, which is part of the Azimio alliance and received two slots.
Before their names are presented to the National Assembly plenary for review and approval, the candidates will now be examined by the Departmental Committee on Finance and National Planning.
Benedict Muasya Mutiso, Wilfred Koitamet Ole Kina, Vincent Kuko, Isabel Nyambura, and Hadija Juma are the individuals chosen by the Kenya Kwanza Alliance.
Seven CRA commissioners were proposed by political parties in accordance with Article 215 of the Constitution.
The dominant party has five seats, compared to two for the minority.
Before the existing commissioners’ tenure end on December 31st, Parliament is anticipated to approve the candidates.
The political parties are required to nominate two representatives for the National Assembly based on their numerical strength, in accordance with the nomination rules.
According to their proportional representation in the Senate, each political party may nominate up to five people.
The President proposes the chairman, and the National Assembly approves it.
