President Uhuru Kenyatta's Jubilee Party has once again cemented its dominance of the National Assembly after clinching the highest number of elected MPs in Tuesday's elections.
The ruling party has garnered 49 per cent or 163 of the 349 seats in the National Assembly, while affiliate parties under National Super Alliance have a combined 34 per cent seats.
The ruling party made significant inroads in Nasa perceived strongholds of western Kenya, where they bagged 8 MP seats previously held by the opposition.
Kanu (eight seats), DP (one) and PNU one) split the other 17 slots in the National Assembly, up from eight.
Kalonzo Musyoka-led Wiper Party garnered 22 seats, a drop from 26 in the previous House, while Musalia Mudavadi ANC got 11 seats from the previous 12. Moses Wetangula's Ford Kenya has 11 MPs from 10, while Raila's ODM took the lions share of opposition coalition with 74 seats, down from 91.
A majority in the National Assembly is crucial for the President given that he will require enough support to push through pieces of legislation that supports implementation of his manifesto.
In the 11th parliament, Jubilee had 167 MPs to opposition's 141 MPs, which worked to the advantage of President Uhuru Kenyatta.
