Senate speaker Kenneth Lusaka has directed that the tabling of the Constitution of Kenya (Amendment) Bill, 2020 be deferred.
The Bill had been slotted in the order paper for introduction in the House for first reading on Thursday afternoon.
This followed the speaker’s directive on Wednesday that the Bill be introduced in the form in which the IEBC sent them to the County Assemblies.
But on Thursday, the speaker said tabling of the Bill will be deferred to a later date.
“After consultation with our the legal affairs committee and that of the National Assembly, I wish to differ Order No. 8. I will give more information at a later date,” Lusaka said.
