The High Court in Lilongwe has reversed its earlier judgment in a case where some disgruntled opposition Malawi Congress Party (MCP) wanted the party to hold convention.
Last month, the court ordered MCP to hold a convention within 90 days following a complaint lodged by some officials within the Party accusing Dr. Lazarus Chakwera is being nepotistic.
In the complaint seen by FaceofMalawi by lawyer representing the complainants, Wesley Namasala said his clients were not happy with leadership style of party president Lazarus Chakwera whom they accuse of disregarding elected positions in the party and opted to appoint people into positions.
But MCP through its lawyer Peter Chankhwantha challenged the ruling, saying the Judge did not look on some technical issues when delivering the ruling on the matter.
After hearing the arguments, Judge Justice Chifundo Kachale on Friday ruled that his earlier determination is quashed and MCP will not hold any convention.
The development means that the Party will still follow the recent appointments made by Chakwera in the National Executive Committee(NEC).
Meanwhile it is yet to be seen if the disgruntled members will appeal for the ruling.
