The National Super Alliance (NASA) has lined up two parliamentary group retreats in the next few weeks to plan strategy.

But the Opposition coalition will first have a retreat for MPs from Nairobi and its environs before having a full retreat in Naivasha next month.

On Tuesday, co-principals Raila Odinga, Kalonzo Musyoka, Musalia Mudavad, and Moses Wetang'ula, at a meeting, agreed that there was a need to convene a joint parliamentary group meeting to cement NASA's position on a number of issues and particularly on the matter of electoral justice.

NASA Chief Executive Norman Magaya said key issues to be addressed when MPs meet will be review of public expenditure and management of public resources, ballooning Government borrowing, and strengthening of devolution.
