By-Election Set For Mutoko North Constituency5 years ago
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.Feedback
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.
