Mutharika snubs Parliament call

191

Malawi President Peter Mutharika has turned down a summon to parliament on Wednesday where he would be asked to clear the legislators on numerous questions including the maize crisis that has hit the nation now.

These revelations have been made by the Speaker of the National Assembly Richard Msowoya.

Mutharika facing impeachment calls

Not going to parliament.

According to Msowoya, the Malawi leader has opted to delegate responsible Ministers on the issues that he was being asked to respond to.

He disclosed that Mutharika wants Finance Minister, Goodall Gondwe to represent him instead.

The summon was ignited by Malawi Congress Party (MCP) President Lazarus Chakwera together with Mzimba south west MP Harry Mkandawire, Rumphi east MP Kamlepo Kalua.

The three with backing by the opposition side wanted Mutharika to face His Excellency’s Question Time (HEQs) style-session of food situation and Malawi situation since holding the executive to account is one of the three responsibilities of parliament.

But in making the communication,Msosowya  said the law allows the head of state to delegate the answering of the questions to any cabinet minister, emphasizing that the President had not broken any law.

“The President has indicated that he will not be able to appear in person,” said Speaker Msowoya.

This comes hot in the heels of calls for the Malawi leader to step down.

Recently, Mutharika said that he will not ascend to any law that the parliament will pass that he feels undermines his powers.
