Mutharika actions were lawful confirms Sunduzwayo Madise, Dean of Law at Chanco

Mutharika refusal to assent electoral bills is lawful , says Dean Sunduzwayo Madise

Malawi President actions who waited the Maximum 21 days to reject the election bills hastily approved in Parliament per directive from the 5 Concourt judges were 100% lawful according to Sunduzwayo Madise, Dean of the Faculty of Law at Chancellor College—a constituent college of the University of Malawi 

Madise, who is also commissioner of the Malawi Human Rights Commission (MHRC), states that the law gives the President the power to either assent or withhold his assent.

He said if the President withholds his assent, he must give reasons and forward them to the Speaker.

“Parliament can then debate the Bills again, if it desires, but can only do so after 21 days.

If the law makers decide not to pass the bills again then questions remain as to what will be the outcome of the ConCourt Judgement that did not take these factors and constitutional questions into account.

The 500-page ConCourt judgement seemingly is being overtaken by the Malawi Constitution leaving Malawians more divided than before the ill-advised judiciary decided to put the case on the calendar.
