Garissa Township Member of Parliament Aden Duale has assigned himself the duty of convincing President Uhuru Kenyatta and Deputy President Dr William Ruto to embrace the Parliamentary system.
Duale, who also doubles up as the leader of the majority in the National Assembly, spoke on Sunday in Garissa County to members of the press.
"I am going to convince my very good friend William Ruto, I am going to convince the president, I am going to convince... and that is the only way. We are not in Kenya by accident, " the Garissa Township legislator said.
According to Duale's proposals, the party with the majority of seats in Parliament will be accorded the opportunity to choose a Prime Minister.
He contended that a parliamentary system would go a long way in reducing the ethnic animosities and tensions that attend general elections.
His support for the new system of governance has been seen to be at variance with the deputy president's position on the prospect of changing the country's governance structure.
DP Ruto has in the past expressed his opposition to a governance structure that seeks to reward individuals with powerful positions.
The Building Bridges Inititiative (BBI) committee has been collecting views from Kenyans on how they want to be governed in the future.
