Chama Cha Mashinani (CCM) party leader and the former Bomet County Governor Isaac Ruto has responded to Deputy President William Ruto’s big question on the Building Bridges Initiative that was launched on Monday 26 October at Bomas of Kenya.
During the BBI launch, the second in command raised a concern stating that he does not understand how the controversial report will fix the idea of the winner takes it all in every election as the president will appoint the Prime minister and his two deputies in the proposed BBI report.
According to the second in command, the idea of the president appointing the Prime minister and his two deputies from his winning side does not cure the problem.
However, the former Bomet governor who is also the part leader stated that having the Prime minister is a way of making sure that the president must delegate some powers which will also give parliament more powers.

The former Bomet governor further stated he gives the BBI document a 50% pass and therefore he will vote for it.
The second in command had also picked an issues with the proposal that the political parties should appoint some Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) commissioners where Isaac Ruto responded that the best performing commissioners were picked by political parties in 1997.
