Kenya delegation on study tour in Norway: Learning how coalition governments operate

Posted by African Press International on October 12, 2011

 By API

A group of Kenyan leaders numbering 15 arrived in Oslo, Norway on Saturday the 8th of October on a study tour to learn how Norwegian political system works, especially when a coalition government is to become a form of government.

The arrangement is co-hosted by the Oslo Center for Peace and Human Rights and The National Democratic Institute. Oslo center for Peace  and Human Rights is the product of the former Prime Minister Kjell Magne Bondevik, a man whose party, the Christian Democrats participated in a coalition government in 2001-2005.

Click the video to listen to the interview with Mr Bondevik:

On retiring from active politics, Mr Bondevik started the Center, and is now engaged in humanitarian work in many countries where his Center works with governments and private organizations for the enhancement of peace and human rights.

By organizing the study tour in collaboration with NDI, the Oslo Center for Peace wants to assist the Kenyans to have peaceful elections next year. It is possible the Kenyans may have to form a coalition government after the elections because there are many presidential candidates without any one candidate that claims a direct win as per the present polls.

Therefore, the study tour on how to negotiate for a shared responsibility in running the country is good for the leaders, especially because the leaders on the study tour are from the parties that will most definitely get their members elected and will have to negotiate with one another on the way forward to lead the country.

To form a coalition government and run it successfully is not easy. Norway has a lot of experience in having coalition governments.

Kenya has had a coalition government from 2008 and is expected to run until next year’s elections. The coalition government has not run smoothly.

The organizers want to help Kenya in the coming elections come 2012. The move is meant to avoid clashes that killed many people in 2007 disputed elections.

While in Norway the group had a chance to meet with the Deputy President of the Norwegian Parliament. The meeting was held in Parliament building and was attended by the Former Norwegian Prime minister Mr Kjell Magne Bondevik.

 The chaos of 2007 has led to charges preferred against six Kenyan leaders who appeared last month and this month at the International Criminal Court in the Hague.

Mr William Ruto, Mr Henry Kosgey, Mr Joshua Sang made their appearance between 1st September through 20th September, while Hon Uhuru Kenyatta, Mr Francis Muthaura and Mr Hussein Ali had their days in court between the 21st September ending on the 5th October.

The ICC Judges will now make their ruling in the coming 90 days whether to confirm the charges against the six Kenyans or clear their them against the charges.

The delegation comprises of leaders from the following parties; 

NARC-KENYA Political Party,  ODM-KENYA Political Part, FORD-KENYA Political Party, DEMOCRATIC PARTY Political Party, ODM Political Party, KANU Political Party and PNU Political Party

The group is accompanied to Norway by NDI officers Mary O’Hagan, Senior Country Director (British passport), John Lovdal, Senior Program Manager (Norwegian passport) and Phoebe Mungai, Program Manager (Kenyan passport)
