Former Uasin Gishu Senator Isaac Melly was among six SCR nominees who stood before the Parliamentary Service Commission for vetting. Other nominees were Michael Onyura, Rachel Ameso, Andrew toboso, and Amina Abdalla. Former Senator Halima Abdille has been rejected by the PSC.
In his bid to secure the plum job, Melly promised to secure dialogue between the Parliamentary Service Commission and the Salary Review Commission that has historically stood against the MPs repeated moves to increase their salaries. Melly argued that dialogue would entrench stakeholder engagement and help the commission to arrive at better decisions as well as help parliament to improve its mandate.
