Savula supports proposal seeking the dissolution of Parliament

Lugari MP Ayub Savula speaking in his constituency

Lugari MP Ayub Savula has supported the move by the Law Society of Kenya (LSK) seeking the dissolution of parliament for failing to implement the two thirds gender rule.

Speaking at Murrum village in his constituency during the burial of Mzee Edwin Njite Savula said he is ready for elections in the event that the August house is dissolved.

Savula said it was regrettable that several attempts in the national assembly have been blocked by a section of legislators who are objected to the move, adding that dissolution of parliament is the only way to deal with rigid MPs who are against the initiative.

On Friday LSK called on the Chief Justice David Maraga to write to the President advising him on the dissolution of parliament following failure to enact laws that would allow implementation of section 27 of the Constitution that would ensure gender balance in both levels of government.

Savula further called on young people to come out and contest for elective positions as one of the best ways of increasing their numbers in parliament.
