Lawyer Ahmednasir Abdullahi has opted to leave the Judicial Service Commission at the end of the year.
The Law of Society (LSK) announced Friday that Mr Abdullahi will leave the JSC at the end of his three-year term in December.
LSK chairman Eric Mutua said the body has two representatives in the JSC who serve for three and five year terms. The other representative is Florence Mwangangi.
"I spoke to both Ahmednasir Abdullahi and Florence Mwangangi our two representatives where Mr Ahmednasir Abdullahi volunteered and elected to be the one whose ends in 3 years. That is by the end of this year," said Mr Mutua in a statement.
"Further, Mr Ahmednasir, who though eligible to run for a further 3 year term, has opted not to contest the position.
Mr Mutua also dismissed claims that LSK was plotting to replace Mr Abdullahi as its representative in the JSC.
