NAIROBI, Sept. 14 (Xinhua) --The Commonwealth has pledged to support the implementation of Kenya's new Constitution which was promulgated last month.

Speaking ahead of the official opening of the group's parliamentary association meeting in Nairobi on Tuesday, Commonwealth Secretary General Kamalesh Sharma said the new law is a milestone in Kenya's history.

He said the Commonwealth is ready to avail foreign experts who will help Kenya draft some of the consequential legislations required to activate the new Constitution.

Sharma, who is attending the 56th Commonwealth Parliamentary Association conference in Nairobi, said his organization has already served Kenya with a list detailing areas of assistance.

Sharma said they expect Kenya to choose from the list and give it a feedback on areas of choice.

He said on the list are chapters on land, devolution and representation. Kenya is expected to pick on them to enable Commonwealth to avail the legal drafters.

"We have given a list to choose from and it includes issues on land, devolution and representation," he told the Standard newspaper on Tuesday.
