Chihana takes federal system of government back to Parliament


Member of Parliament for Mzimba North Yeremiah Chihana is set to resurface the debate on federal system of government following a motion which is scheduled to table in the National Assembly this week.

According to information at hand, Chihana, an Alliance for Democracy Aford (AFORD) has proposed to move a motion that will allow lawmakers to change the country’s Constitution to facilitate for the formation of a federal system of government “for equitable distribution of resources”.

The development follows the move by the current regime under President Professor Arthur Peter Mutharika to side-line the North when it comes to development.

“This House resolves that all efforts and legal frameworks should be put in place to towards adoption of a federal system of government within a specified time period and in any case before the next scheduled elections in 2024,” reads part of Chihana’s notice of a private members motion.

Meanwhile it is unlikely that the motion would be passed in the National Assembly.
