Chamisa's Term Expired On 14 February- Pressure Group

The Morgan Tsvangirai Legacy (MTL) pressure group has called on MDC Secretary General Douglas Mwonzora to urgently invoke the constitution and call for the extra-ordinary congress to elect a substantive president in accordance with Article 9.21 of the party’s constitution.

Armed with what they said is the original copy of the MDC constitution, MTL held a press conference in Harare yesterday where they said Nelson Chamisa’s term expired in February. The said calling for a congress in May is a breach of the constitution as Chamisa’s term of office came to an end on the 14 of February this year. Said Mernard Chisvo:

In terms of article 9.21 of the MDC constitution, the acting presidency claimed by Chamisa expired a year after the death of Dr Tsvangirai. There is no other section of that constitution which validates his continued stay as president or acting president outside an extra-ordinary congress properly called to elect a president of his party.

The pressure group also took a swipe at the criticised the decision to let G40 members and former MDC members; Welshman Ncube and Tendai Biti, among others to run for posts. The group said it is a violation of article 5.5.2.
