The High Court in Blantyre has thrown out the application by the Attorney General and the Registrar of Political Parties to appeal against the registration of UTM as a political party in the Supreme Court.
Mhango who is also ruling Democratic Progressive Party Director of Legal Affairs filed the application on Tuesday asking the Supreme Court of Appeal to overturn a High Court ruling made on 2nd November this year that ordered the Registrar of Political Parties to register UTM by Friday this week.
The Attorney General in the application said the High Court judge John Chirwa erred by ruling that Chilima should have been heard before the registrar decided not to register UTM.
According to the applicants, Chilima was not being accused of wrongdoing and the law only required the Registrar to inform in writing the party affected by the decision.
But the High Court has today thrown the application and the case has since been delisted in the court chambers.
UTM Spokesperson Joseph Chidanti Malunga has confirmed of the development in a statement made available to faceofmalawi.
