The National Super Alliance (NASA) coalition on Tuesday announced its next move after Nandi Hills MP Alfred Keter was ousted as the Chairman of the Labour Parliamentary Committee.
However, Parliament Minority Chief Whip Junet Mohammed stated that the Opposition coalition would only recognize Mr Keter as the chairman of the committee.
"As far as NASA coalition is concerned, we still and specifically our members in those committees recognize Hon Keter and Hon Tiren as chairmen of those parliamentary committees," he tweeted on Tuesday.
"Indeed, we recognized Mr Keter as chairman and we shall confirm that in another vote which shall be held in a secret ballot," he disclosed.
Mr Sossion, however, declined to comment on why he attended the vote despite an order from the Minority Chief Whip directing all NASA MPs to boycott the committee meetings.
During the deliberations, Sossion strongly voiced his opposition to the Keter ouster, maintaining that Parliament was an independent arm of Government.
"This is the most reckless process we are engaging in. I have confidence in the Chair and Vice-Chair. The three arms of the government should be independent," he stated.
