Nairobi businessman Mr. Stanley Livindo wants an interpretation of the constitution where the President can serve only two terms. He added that there is a clause that also talked about the presidency which includes the deputy president.

Stanley Livondo wants the Attorney General to acknowledge that when Articles 130 (1), 131 (1) (b) and 148 (6)(a) are read together, they mean that the President and his DP cannot stand for nomination as presidential candidates after two terms.

“The Petitioner brings this petition for an interpretation of the provisions of the Constitution with regards to qualifications and disqualifications of persons intending to vie as a presidential candidate,” the document read.

Mr. Livindo refers to Article 142(2) which states that: “The current sitting President is barred from standing for nomination…” and Article 148 (6) (a) which he wants interpreted to mean that a sitting Deputy President who has served for two consecutive terms should also be blocked.

" Your petitioner, therefore, prays that a declaration be issued that Article 137 (2) (b) and (3) of the Constitution be interpreted to mean that it applies to the case of the President and Deputy President reelection at the completion of their first term and to a Member of Parliament at their reelection at following general elections,” the petition reads
