Public Participation in the Legislature

Public Participation

According to article 196 of the Constitution of Kenya, the County Assembly must conduct its business in an open manner, and hold its sittings and those of its committees, in public; and facilitate public participation and involvement in the legislative and other business of the assembly and its committees.

The same article dictates that the County Assembly may not exclude the public, or any media, from any sitting unless in exceptional circumstances the speaker has determined that there are justifiable reasons for doing so
