Last parliament meeting before elections sits from Nov. 19

Members of parliament have been summoned for the last meeting  of parliament before the highly contested May 2019 elections and it  starts from November 19 to December 14.

Fiona Kalemba Clerk of Parliament: House meets next month

Clerk of Parliament Fiona Kalemba, in a brief statement seen by Nyasa Times , is calling all legislators to attend.

No business has been indicated for the meeting,  but civil society organisations are lobbying opposition back benchers to bring into the 193 strong House an impeachment motion.

They want President Peter Mutharika impeached on various grounds.

But it is doubtful that the motion would be moved after main opposition, the Malawi Congress Party (MCP) cast doubt over the motion.

Analysts say the MCP fears if Mutharika is impeached then vice president Saulos Chilima would immediately take over just less than six months before a general election.

The ruling Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) and the MCP are also planning to topple Speaker of the National Assembly Richard Msowoya for joining the United Transformation Movement (UTM) of Saulos Chilima.

I suppose that between now and the 19th of November we shall have to listen to more of our politicians telling us how much they support the concept of servant-leadership. No one ever tells us what they think this concept means, or what it would look like if it were put into practice. If our present political leaders embody the concept, I suppose we should have to conclude that servant-leadership at the national level would look a bit like what would happen if we gave the responsibility for the running of our household to our gardener or kitchen-maid, but on… Read more »
