Ksh.100,000 Parliament Naming Competition; How To Apply.

The Parliamentary Service Commission (PSC) has invited interested parties to submit names for the nearly finished building that will house the offices of National Assembly and Senate members.

The Parliamentary Service Commission hinted at the best name for the new building in a public announcement.

The name should reflect Parliament’s role in society as well as its vision for good governance and representation.

A name that honors underrepresented groups in the legislature, particularly women or minority groups who have made significant advances but have not received adequate historical recognition, is also encouraged.

Interested parties should drop off their applications at Parliament buildings or send them via email to [email protected] and [email protected]

The winner will receive a Ksh.100,000 cash prize.
