CASE OF THE WEEK

 

The nature of nominations by political parties that would meet special interest representation in the legislature.

Commission for the Implementation of the Constitution v Attorney General & another
Civil Appeal No 351 of 2012
Court of Appeal at Nairobi
F. Azangalala, P.O. Kiage & J. Mohammed, JJ.A
June 14, 2013
Reported by Beryl A. Ikamari

Brief facts
The Attorney General, exercising powers provided in the Revision of Laws Act (Cap. 2) published Legal Notice No. 142 of 2011, the Laws of Kenya (Rectification) Order, 2011, which deleted the word "not" found in section 34(9) of the Elections Act No. 24 of 2011. Section 34(9) initially provided that party lists, for nomination of members to the National Assembly, Senate and County Assembly, for purposes of special interest representation, may not contain the name of any Presidential or Deputy Presidential candidate.

Thereafter, a petition was lodged to challenge the constitutionality of the amendment to section 34(9) of the Elections Act No. 24 of 2011. It was claimed that the new provision went against various constitutional provisions meant to safeguard the position of various special interest groups such as women, the youth, persons living with disabilities, workers, minorities, the marginalized and the disadvantaged. It was also contended that the amendment would defeat non-discrimination and affirmative action aims pursued within the Constitution.

At the High Court trial, Justice D. Majanja entered judgement entailing a finding that section 34(9) of the Elections Act No. 24 of 2011 was not unconstitutional, and that party lists made pursuant to that section could include Presidential and Deputy Presidential candidates. An appeal was lodged at the Court of Appeal against the judgment and the Court of Appeal made its findings on the issue of the constitutionality of section 34(9) of the Elections Act, No. 24 of 2011.

Issues
i. Whether the amendment made to section 34(9) of the Elections Act, No. 24 of 2011, was inconsistent with constitutional provisions as it effectively made the nomination of persons who were Presidential candidates and Deputy Presidential candidates, as special interest representatives, possible.

The Elections Act, No. 24 of 2011, section 34(9);
(9) The party list may contain a name of any Presidential or Deputy Presidential candidate nominated for an election under this Act.

Constitutional Law-interpretation of constitutional provisions-nomination of special interest representatives as members to the National Assembly, Senate and County Assembly by political parties-the nature of nominations that could be deemed to entail special interest representation-whether the nomination of Presidential Candidates and Deputy Presidential Candidates would embody special interest representation- Constitution of Kenya, 2010, articles 10, 90, 97(1)(c), 98(1)(b), 98(1)(c), 98(1)(d) and 177(1)(c) and Elections Act No. 24 of 2011, section 34(9).

Electoral Law-nomination of members to the National Assembly, Senate and County Assembly-the exercise of discretion by political parties in making nominations-whether the political parties' discretion in making nominations of members to the National Assembly, Senate and County Assembly was absolute and unquestionable- Constitution of Kenya, 2010, articles 10, 90, 97(1)(c), 98(1)(b), 98(1)(c), 98(1)(d) and 177(1)(c) and Elections Act No. 24 of 2011, section 34(9).

Statutes – interpretation of statutes - the constitutionality of section 34(9) of the Elections Act, No. 24 of 2011- Constitution of Kenya, 2010, articles 10, 90, 97(1)(c), 98(1)(b), 98(1)(c), 98(1)(d) and 177(1)(c) and Elections Act No. 24 of 2011, section 34(9).

Held:
1. The legal framework for the nomination of candidates to the Senate, National Assembly and County Assembly was intended to inject equity, rationality, objectivity and inclusivity into the nomination processes. It was created to weigh against absolute and unquestionable discretion within political parties as relates to such nominations.

2. Pursuant to article 10 of the Constitution of Kenya, 2010, the national values and principles of governance were applicable to all persons, inclusive of all state organs and political parties, whenever any of them applied or interpreted the Constitution, or enacted any law or made or implemented public policy considerations. Article 10 (2)(b) of the Constitution of Kenya, 2010, included values such as human dignity, equity, social justice, inclusiveness, equality, non-discrimination and the protection of the marginalized.

3. The discretion exercised by political parties in nomination processes was to be in accord with constitutional provisions and the spirit of the Constitution. The amendment made to section 34(9) of the Elections Act No. 24 of 2011, seemed to suggest that it was within the discretion of political parties to nominate Presidential candidates and their deputies who did not ascend to office, to the National Assembly, Senate or County Assembly, as special interest representatives.

4. The political parties' discretion with regard to nomination of candidates to the National Assembly, Senate and County Assembly was to be carried on in accordance with constitutional provisions. That discretion entailed the following nominations;

a) The twelve members of the National Assembly, nominated by political parties to represent special interests including the youth, persons with disabilities and workers, pursuant to article 97(1)(c) of the Constitution of Kenya, 2010.

b) The sixteen women members of the Senate nominated by political parties to the Senate, pursuant to article 98(1)(b) of the Constitution of Kenya, 2010.

c) Two members of the Senate, being one man and one woman, nominated to represent the youth, pursuant to article 98(1)(c) of the Constitution of Kenya, 2010.

d) Two members of the Senate, being one man and one woman, nominated to represent persons with disabilities, pursuant to article 98(1)(d) of the Constitution of Kenya, 2010.

e) The nomination of members to the County Assembly to represent marginalized groups, including persons with disabilities and the youth, pursuant to article 177(1)(c) of the Constitution of Kenya, 2010.

5. As concerns the nomination of members to the National Assembly, Senate and County Assembly, the exercise of discretion by political parties was required to promote gender equity and also regional and ethnic diversity, in accordance with the provisions of article 90 of the Constitution of Kenya, 2010. Additionally, such nominations were intended to protect the interests of women, and to give special representation to the youth and persons with disabilities.

6. The reference to the representation of special interests under Article 97(1)(c) of the Constitution of Kenya, 2010, invited the application of the ejusdem generis rule. Special interests representation would therefore include the representation of the youth, persons with disability, workers and also the disadvantaged and the vulnerable. It would include those interests which had not been catered for in the electoral process and which were vital to the effectiveness of the democratic process in ensuring adequate representation for all.

7. It was vital to the flourishing of democracy that representation for minority groups in the legislative assembly be availed and the instrumentality of nominations under the category of special interests was meant to facilitate such representation.

8. While the list of special interests was fluid, Presidential candidates and Deputy Presidential candidates could not possibly have been intended to be representatives of special interests.

9. In the interests of constitutionalism and in exercise of the judiciary's role in interpreting the Constitution, the Court of Appeal in an appeal from the High Court could determine the constitutionality of legislative enactments. Testing the constitutionality of legislative provisions was especially vital in preserving special safeguards provided for in the Constitution in order to protect persons or groups that were vulnerable or disadvantaged.


Appeal allowed. (Section 34(9) of the Elections Act, No. 24 of 2011, declared void and invalid.)
