Political Activist Okiya Omtatah wants the on-going elections of members of East African Legislative Assembly suspended.

He says that the process is irregular.

According to Omtatah, MPs have allocated all the 9 seats in the EALA to four political parties.

He argues that locking out independents candidates is denying Kenyans a right to participate in the assembly.

He argues that the 9 available slots should NOT be pegged on political parties but an open opportunity for Kenyans who are not necessarily aligned to any political party to participate in the elections, just like at the General Elections.

He claims that there is ample time for Parliament to reconsider the matter without prejudicing the inauguration on the new EALA Parliament on 5th June 2017.

Mr Omtatah says the whole process should be redone and an opportunity accorded to all Kenyans irrespective of their political affiliations.
