High Court delays ruling on DPP’ leader for LoP in Parliament recipe for chaos: But why?

By Twink Jones Gadama

BLANTYRE-(MaraviPost)-The Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) is facing a growing sense of unease as the High Court continues to delay making a determination on the party’s Leader of Opposition in Parliament.

This delay has raised concerns among party members and stakeholders, with fears that it could lead to further chaos and confusion within the party and in Parliament.

The DPP recently moved to vacate an injunction obtained by Kondwani Nankhumwa against the party, in an effort to assert its own choice for Leader of Opposition in Parliament.

However, the High Court’s delay in issuing a ruling on the matter has left the party in a state of limbo, unsure of who holds the rightful position.

Party spokesperson Namalomba expressed disappointment in the delay, highlighting that the High Court had initially assured them that the case would be treated as a matter of urgency.

Three weeks have passed since the matter was presented, and the lack of a ruling has only added to the confusion within the party.

Vice Chairperson for the Human Rights Defenders Coalition (HRDC) Michael Kaiyatsa also weighed in on the situation, warning that the delay by the court could lead to even more chaos within the DPP and in Parliament.

He urged the court to expedite its ruling to prevent any further complications.

The current situation has also led to a standoff within the party, with the DPP recognizing Mary Navicha as the Leader of Opposition in Parliament, while the Speaker continues to recognize Kondwani Nankhumwa.

This conflicting recognition has only added to the uncertainty and instability within the party.

The Catholic Bishops recently addressed the issue of delays in the judiciary in their pastoral letter titled “The sad story of Malawi,” where they criticized the failure to regulate judges who take time to hear cases, thereby frustrating the delivery of justice.

This criticism has only heightened the concerns surrounding the delay in the ruling on the Leader of Opposition in Parliament.

As the DPP awaits a decision from the High Court, the party finds itself in a precarious position, with its leadership structure in question and the potential for further chaos looming.

The urgency of the situation has been emphasized by various stakeholders, who are calling for swift action to prevent any further complications within the party and in Parliament.

The delay in the ruling on the Leader of Opposition in Parliament has created a sense of uncertainty and instability within the DPP.

The party’s members and stakeholders are anxiously waiting for a resolution to the situation, as the longer the delay persists, the greater the potential for chaos and confusion.

It is imperative for the High Court to expedite its ruling to bring clarity and resolution to this ongoing issue.
