THE new districts are putting more pressure on the parliamentary budget, an official has said.

The acting clerk to Parliament, Chris Kaija, last week told the legal and parliamentary affairs committee that the new districts would require more resources for the emoluments and logistical facilitation of the new MPs.

A total of 24 districts have been created on top of the 87 that have been provided for in the 8th Parliament.

Another five could be approved before next year’s general elections, which will increase the number of districts to 116.
This will mean 29 more district Woman MPs and more constituencies.

Kaija said there would be inadequacy of sitting space for MPs in the chamber, committee rooms and offices.
