List of Kenyan nominees to EALAUpdated Friday, May 18th 2012 at 00:00 GMT +3
Gichohi challenged the parties to adhere to the nomination rules and drew the attention of the political parties to the provisions of Article 50 (2) of the Treaty for the establishment of East African Community, which provides, in part, that a person is qualified to be elected a member of EALA if the person is qualified to be elected a member of the National Assembly of a partner state under its constitution.
“In this regard, sections 34 and 35 of the old constitution are of particular significance,” said Gichohi.
He said: “The parties must submit a record of minutes of their nominations when they return their nominees to Parliament next Friday.”
The public will be allowed to inspect the nominee’s forms at Parliament’s County Hall on May 26.
Thereafter the names will be forwarded to the departmental Committee on Defense and Foreign Relations for vetting on May 30.
The whole House will approve the names a day after the parliamentary committee completes the vetting process.
Gichohi said one candidate whose nomination papers did not indicate the party from which they he was seeking nomination was disqualified.
Last Friday, the National Assembly invited applications from interested persons for the positions of Member of EALA to replace MPs whose term will expire on June 4.
