By-Election Set For Mutoko North Constituency

Speaking to The Herald, Clerk of Parliament Kennedy Chokuda said the elevation of Mable Chinomona to President of Senate would now result in a by-election.

Chinomona won the right to represent Mutoko North in the just-ended harmonised elections before being elected Senate President. Said Chokuda:

The Constitution is clear in respect of such scenario. It is self-explanatory that there would be a by-election. Necessary processes will soon be made.

Section 129 (1) (d) of the Constitution read as follows:

The seat of a Member of Parliament becomes vacant on the Member becoming President of the Senate or Speaker or a Member of the other House.

Parliament is expected to officially notify President Mnangagwa and the Zimbabwe Electoral Commission (ZEC) of the existence of a vacancy in the National Assembly to trigger necessary logistical arrangements for the by-election.
