IEBC clears BBI Bill after verifying 1.14m signatures

IEBC clears BBI Bill after verifying 1.14m signatures

The Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission has cleared BBI Bill after verifying 1.14m signatures. 

This is out of the 4.2 million signatures collected by the BBI team led by the Orange Democratic Movement (ODM) last year.

With the verification, it means that the BBI Bill will be transmitted to the 47 county assemblies.

If a county assembly approves the draft Bill, the speaker of the county assembly shall deliver a copy of the draft Bill jointly to the Speakers of the two Houses of Parliament, with a certificate that the county assembly has approved it.

Article 157(7) says that if the draft Bill has been approved by a majority of the county assemblies, it shall be introduced in Parliament without delay.

If a majority of the members of each House pass the Bill, it shall be submitted to the President for assent.
