Garissa Township MP Aden Duale has outlined Parliament's agenda as lawmakers resume House sittings on Tuesday.

The legislators are returning from a two months recess.

According to Duale, re-organisation of the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC), the two-thirds gender rule and the 2019/2020 budget estimates are among the top issues MPs will discuss once they resume on Tuesday.

Speaking to journalists in Garissa Town on Sunday, Duale said the House will be moving to replace commissioners who exited the electoral agency after the 2017 general election.

The re-organisation at the IEBC comes as the agency prepares to carry out boundary delimitation.

The Garissa legislator also said that the two-thirds gender bill will be brought to the House for voting.

The voting on the bill was suspended in November last year after it lacked quorum.

Women politicians, activists and leaders are pushing for the passing of the two-thirds gender law.

National Treasury Cabinet Secretary (CS) Henry Rotich is also expected to present the 2019/2020 budget estimates to Parliament.

“Our tray is full and we are going to hit the road running once we start stings,” Duale said.

He said that Parliament will also discuss the anti-graft laws with the aim of making them tighter.

Duale stated that the House fully supports the war against corruption.

The leader of Majority in the National Assembly indicated that they are ready to help President Uhuru Kenyatta actualise his development legacy to Kenyans.
