Each County Assembly then elects two of its members to join the Speaker who is normally an automatic member to form a 141-member Governing Council (GC).
The GC consequently elects a 20-member Executive team.
CAF has five chapters namely including that of the Speakers, Deputy Speakers, Majority Leaders, Minority Leaders and the Women caucus.
