Expulsion is now the work of the party,” said Nderitu. She further explained that once her office notifies IEBC, they will decide the next course of action for the embattled MP. Nderitu further explained that the replacement in the National Assembly will follow the law as provided in Section 37 of the Elections Act. “If a representative from a political party list dies, withdraws from the party list, changes parties, resigns or is expelled from his or her party during the term of the representative, the seat of the representative shall be allocated to the next candidate of the same gender on the respective political party list,” reads Section 37 of the Elections Act. Muluka on his part told The Standard on phone the decision is final and can only be reviewed by the National Executive Council.
