Aden Duale abandons DP Ruto on referendum call as wave sweeps through country
Asher Omondi|Aug. 10, 2019
National Assembly Majority Leader Aden Duale has made an abrupt about turn on referendum calls barely five months after he told off ODM chief Raila Odinga over the same.
Speaking in Garissa, Duale who is also the Garissa Township MP, proposed a parliamentary system with a prime minister as head of government for inclusivity in running the country's affairs.
The lawmaker also asked the Building Bridges Initiative (BBI) taskforce to fast track collecting public views in readiness for constitutional change that will usher in new era.
Some of the proposed changes that Duale suggested was the creation of a premier's office whose holder will be elected either from the party with the most number of MPs or be elected by both Houses.
"We want Kenya where every child is treated equally, where one from pastoralists communities can be elected president. We fight every five years after General Election, that is what we want to end.
As pastoralists communities, we are supporting parliamentary system. Coalitions or parties with highest number of representatives or legislators from Houses will elect the prime minister. BBI should waste no time," he said.
