Kenyan MPs allied to the National Alliance party (TNA) have called on the government of Kenya to declare Thursday, January 17, 2013, a one-off non-working public holiday in Kenya "to enable political parties to conduct their primaries smoothly".
The aforementioned calls for Thursday, January 17, 2013, to be declared a one-off non-working public holiday in Kenya is unlikely to be heeded as, last month (2012-12-12), Kenya's Prime Minister, Raila Odinga, had already ruled-out the declaration of a one-off non-working public holiday in Kenya to enable people to go register as voters for the upcoming presidential elections.
Earlier this year (2012-08-02), the Assumption of Office of The President Bill was tabled as a constitutional bill in Kenya's Parliament and confirms earlier announcements (2012-06-08) that an official non-working public holiday would be declared on the day the next President inauguration.
