The Attorney General has asked the Constitutional Court to dismiss the Petition by nine Patriotic Front-PF Members of Parliament on the decision of the Speaker of the National Assembly to eject them from the house.
The Nine PF MPs have sought the Constitutional Court’s interpretation on whether or not Speaker of the National Assembly NELLY MUTTI contravened the Constitution by ejecting them from the house after the High Court nullified their election results.
But the Attorney General’s Chamber has contended that their case amounts to multiplicity of action as there are cases before the court concerning the same relief they are seeking.
The cases have been filed by Governance, Election, Advocacy, Research Service-GEARS Initiative and the Law Association of Zambia-LAZ.
The Attorney General’s Chamber has stated that the nine PF MPs ought to have joined proceedings in the GEARS Initiative case.
This is contained in the Skeleton Arguments filed in the Constitutional Court.
Meanwhile the Constitutional Court has dismissed the application to consolidate the petitions by GEARS Initiatives and LAZ on whether or not the Speaker of the National Assembly was on firm ground to eject the nine PF MPs from the house.
On December 7, 2021 the Speaker ejected from the National Assembly nine PF members of Parliament whose election results were nullified by the High Court in various jurisdictions countrywide.
The affected MPs are BOWMAN LUSAMBO of Kabushi, JOSEPH MALANJI of Kwacha, MUTOTWE KAFWAYA of Lunte, SIBONGILE MWAMBA of Kasama Central, LUKA MUMBA of Nakonde and ALLAN BANDA of Chimwemwe.
Others are TAULO CHEWE of Lubansenshi, KALALWE MUKOSA of Chinsali and CHRISTOPHER CHIBUYE of Mkushi North.
