Parliament has no money for age limit consultations - Finance sub-committee
NTV has learnt that the parliamentary commission might be forced to cut some of its expenditures allocated for some activities in order to raise the money.

The parliamentary finance subcommittee is slated to meet and chat a way forward to raise the needed funds to support members of parliament to carry out consultative meeting on the age limit bill that was tabled at the end of last month.

Approximately 9 billion shillings is needed for the process but up to this evening, parliament had not identified a source for the funds.

This might hamper the much anticipated consultative process.

NTV has however learnt that the parliamentary commission might be forced to cut some of its expenditures allocated for some activities in order to raise the money.

Each Member of Parliament will receive 20 million shillings to return to their constituency and hold consultations on the Constitutional amendment bill 2017 which seeks to amend article 102 (B) and seeks to among others remove the 75 year age cap on those seeking to stand for president.

Meanwhile the ruling party National Resistance movement caucus is slated to meet this Friday to come up with a harmonized position and massage for all its members as they move to consult electorates.
