My Take: Pure Presidential System


The fate of the pure presidential system (with checks) in which all ministers come from outside parliament is in the balance. It is reported that PNU members of the PSC meeting in Naivasha want to maintain the current imperial Monarch with half Cabinet coming from outside Parliament.

The idea of MPs being locked out of the cabinet under the Pure Presidential System (with checks) was designed to diffuse tension in the scramble for lucrative posts through parliamentary elections. It will also detribalize Kenyan politics. The Pure Presidential System will ensure that tribal groupings such as KKK or GEMA or Luo Union (dead) do not balkanize Kenyans.
Those who want many positions to distribute among members of their tribal clubs should root for the Hybrid System.
