Jubilee Party has cemented its dominance of the National Assembly after increasing its share of MPs in the House to nearly half.

Provisional results from the electoral commission show Jubilee Party has garnered 49 per cent or 163 of the 349 seats, while the core parties under Nasa have attained 34 per cent.

Jubilee had 47 per cent of MPs in the last National Assembly whose term ended on August 7.

The ruling party made the gains after clinching seats in constituencies perceived to be Opposition strongholds. These include Nakuru Town West, Lang’ata and some in Bungoma and Kakamega.
