This Bill seeks to repeal and re-enact the Parliamentary Service Act, Act No. 10 of 2000 for the following reasons; First, the Parliamentary Service Act was enacted under the former Constitution and the Act was therefore enacted to give effect to the
provisions of sections 45A and 45B of the former Constitution which established the Parliamentary Service and the Parliamentary Service Commission, respectively. These provisions of the Constitution are no longer in force. In their place, is Article 127 of the Constitution of Kenya, 2010 which establishes a Parliamentary Service Commission and Article 128 of the Constitution which provides for the offices of the Clerks of the Houses of Parliament and the offices of members of staff of the Clerks as offices in the Parliamentary Service. In light of these and other changes in the constitutional regime, it has become necessary to review the Parliamentary Service Act in order to ensure that it complies with the provisions of the Constitution of Kenya 2010.
