NULLIFICATION OF 9 OPPOSITION PARLIAMENTARY SEATS CONDEMNED


 Some stakeholders have expressed concern over the decision by Deputy Speaker of the National Assembly Moses Moyo to declare 9 parliamentary seats belonging to the opposition patriotic front-pf-vacant.

The Deputy Speaker of The National Assembly has declared 9 seats of PF MPs that recently lost their case in the constitutional court challenging their expulsion by Miles Sampa vacant.
Operation Young Vote Executive Director Guess Nyirenda tells Phoenix News that the speaker of the national assembly should have heeded to the letter written to her office by PF Faction Leader Miles Sampa reversing the expulsion of the affected members of parliament.
Mr. Nyirenda says the nullification of the seats will be expensive for the country as elections will have to be held, at a time the country is experiencing immense economic challenges adding that there is no justification for the nullification of the seats when it could have been avoided.
Meanwhile, Foundation for Democratic Process Executive Director Elijah Ruvuta is also concerned that this development will cost the country huge sums of money as a result of holding by-elections in the 9 constituencies.
And Citizens First Leader Harry Kalaba has condemned the ruling by the deputy speaker of the national assembly to declare 9 PF seats vacant saying it is ill-timed, politically motivated and highly inconsiderate.
Mr. Kalaba says this decision will negatively affect the country which is faced with a national disaster of hunger, load shedding and a spiraling high cost of living.
He has since urged the affected MPs to challenge the matter before the courts of law.
Those affected are Pambashe MP, Ronald Chitotela Kawambwa MP, Nickson Chilangwa, Kamfinsa MP, Christopher Kangombe, Chitambo MP, Remember Mutale, Mporokoso MP Brian Mundubile, Shiwangandu MP Stephen Kampyongo, Chilubi MP, Mulenga Fube and Mutotwe Kafwaya of Lunte.
