Mr Wandayi who is Ugunja MP-elect said the only task the clerk can perform on Thursday is to swear in Jubilee MPs but cannot proceed with election of the speaker and his deputy.

“Jubilee does not command a two thirds majority in the Senate or the National Assembly. And yet at the first round of voting for each of two positions, a threshold of two thirds of total House membership is a requirement,” he said.

He said first sitting of Parliament should be convened after the Supreme Court ruling and called for revocation of the gazette notice to convene on August 31st.
