Speaking on Tuesday, the Garissa Township MP noted that the 2010 constitution fails to recognize the position of the leader of opposition, which makes it insufficient.

He argued that there was need for such to be accommodated in one of the legislative houses; the national assembly and senate, to empower and enable him keep the government in check.

According to Duale, the constitution has also completely ignored the position, stressing on the need for there to be measures that will see the leader of opposition equipped with the necessary resources to DP his job.

"The leader of Opposition should have been given the status and resources that are equivalent to him in the National Assembly and the Senate where he can rally his troops and hold government to account. The 2010 constitution lacks that," he said.

Duale made the remarks during an interview on Citizen TV's News Night on Tuesday night.

He added that the absence of the position in the constitution is as well to blame for the exclusivity headache the nation is grappling with.

"Currently we have a Presidential system where the 3 arms of gov’t are independent but we have a problem of inclusivity. The position of the leader of Opposition was left out," he added.

This comes amid two pushes for a referendum to make changes on the constitution, on one side being the Punguza Mizigo initiative and the Building Bridges Initiative on the other.

Punguza Mizigo, however, seeks to reduce elective representation, while the BBI seeks to among others, expand the executive arm of government.
