Nairobi Kenya, Tuesday June 2nd,2020.

The Registrar of Political Parties Ann Nderitu has reiterated the cardinal importance of political parties to optimally use parties’ Internal Dispute Mechanisms to resolve conflicts if they arise.

In a media interview in her Office on the 2nd June, 2020, the Registrar noted that the respective party Constitutions have elaborate provisions adequate to address issues including those pertaining officials and even members. She advised that relevant governing organs of political parties should take the lead and procedurally handle issues within the party before such gets out of hand.

“Aware of the divergent opinions that party officials may hold, there is need to sit and amicably square out issues within the party structures before such matters escalate into conflict”, Ann Nderitu counselled.

The Registrar further urged that political parties should entrench a culture of trusting party organs in solving issues hence minimising conflicts that at times playout in the public and also some ending up into protracted legal battles. She noted that jostling of whichever nature within or between political parties will be detrimental to the institutional image of parties and ultimately negating the national object for which political parties are established.

Ms. Nderitu urged the responsible party governing organs to periodically re-assess their respective Constitutions for review and/or amendments if need be in order to factor in emerging issues in the course of implementation.

Being one of the key instruments of managing political parties, she added, “Section 20 of the Political Parties Act allows that a political party may make alternations to its Constitution but notify the Registrar in a prescribed format within stipulated times”.

The development of a political party Constitution and its consequent evaluation by the ORPP is done within the provisions of second schedule of the Political Parties Act, 2011 and the Political Parties (Registration) Regulations, 2019. A party Constitution details a host of matters such as: the party corporate identifiers and philosophy; documented structure and policies; membership and governance requirements; disciplinary measures; rules and regulations among a host of other stipulations.
