Msaka new deputy Leader of the House: Business Committee meets

Malawi Parliament’s political leadership is meeting Wednesday to set agenda for the meeting of parliament which starts this Friday and high on the agenda is the date for the court sanctioned presidential election.

Msaka: Deputy leader of the House

Spokesperson for parliament Ian Mwenye has confirmed of the meeting of the Business Committee.

Parliament meets from June 5 to July 24 for budget meeting but Speaker Catherane Gotani Hara said other business, including bills and ministerial reports would be tackled as well.

However, of much interest would be the setting of the date of the presidential election as well as the passing of other electoral reform bills which would enable the holding of the election.

Meanwhile, President Peter Mutharika held a caucus of Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) and United Democratic Front (UDF) members of parliament on Tuesday.

He announced to the legislators that Kondwani Nankhumwa remains the Leader of the House, deputized by Bright Msaka who replaces Mary Lunji.

Lunji was dropped in the Cabinet reshuffle and therefore is not in the frontbench.

Symon Vuwa Kaunda remains the government chief whip deputized by Mary Navicha.

Many Governments have combined in Parliment sittings and virtual sittings using Zoom or private networks, Governments have not stopped working because of Covid-19.
The Constituional Court has spoken their Judgment Supreme Court has reaffirmed that ruling. The DPP Government controlled parliment will be foolish not to pass the appropriate laws for this Election. Whatever reason Election Not Held June 23rd Government and MEC will be in CONTEMPT of Court. The President has NOT BEEN DULY ELECTED HE CAN BE REPLACED with a NEW interim President July 4th. RESPECT of THE LAWS and the COURTS is Paramount to Democratic Societies.

Well said, law has to be followed. Just curious though, is this thing of bringing in an “interim president” provided for in our constitution?

We hear that the caucus agreed to introduce a bill to overturn the recent court ruling on 50 +1 and replace it with first past the post system. Further they agreed to postpone the fresh presidential election to 2024. These Mafias have to go!!!
