Two nominated women Senators have raised complaints over the manner in which Jubilee and CORD Coalitions nominated seven members each, to the fourteen member-select committee, that seeks to dialogue the reconstitution of the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC).
Senators Martha Wangari and Joy Gwendo said the two coalitions did not consider incorporating enough number of women to the select committees, to come up with a third-gender rule, as the Constitution stipulates.
In the appointments, CORD had nominated two women MPs; (Mishi Mboko and Hellen Sambili) to represent the Coalition but Sambili turned down the nomination and was replaced by Senator Bonny Khalwale.
Jubilee on the other hand nominated two women MPs; (Naomi Shaban) and (Beatrice Elachi).
Wangari and Gwendo said women as well need to be on the decision making table in the making of a new IEBC Commission, and demanded that both Coalitions reconsider their nominations.
