There were fears that NASA lawmakers would boycott the swearing-in but at the last minute unanimously agreed to attend after a meeting with their leadership but insisted that they will derail the election of speakers until Supreme Court Judges  rule on the presidential election petition.

The 12th Parliament Jubilee Party commands a majority of 199 members while NASA has 127 while independent members stand at 22.

In the Senate; Jubilee and its affiliates dominate with 38 members while NASA has 29 with two independent senators.
