Court rules on Jubilee Embakasi North parliamentary seat primaries case
The Political Parties Dispute Resolution Tribunal has ordered Jubilee Party to issue a nomination certificate to James Mwangi Gakuya for Embakasi North Parliamentary seat.
Led by Kyalo Mbobu, James Atema and Hassan Abdi, the Tribunal ruled that Gakuya was validly elected and therefore he should be issued with the nomination certificate.
“The complainant, James Mwangi Gakuya, was the duly nominated contestant for Member of Parliament Embakasi North Constituency under the Jubilee Party on April 26, 2017,” ruled Kyalo.
Gakuya filed the complaint on May 7, 2017 under certificate of urgency and it was heard by the panel.
He was seeking orders compelling Jubilee Party to issue him with the nomination certificate or Jubilee ticket as the winner and lawfully nominated contestant for MP Embakasi north.
“I am seeking for a declaration as a winner and lawfully nominated contestant for MP Embakasi North Constituency,” argued Mr Gakuya.
He also wanted the Tribunal to quash the decision by the Jubilee Party Appeals Tribunal for militating against democracy.
