The grouping calling itself Concerned Citizens wants the court to also nullify 2019’s Local Government and Parliamentary elections after it nullified the presidential elections case
According to High Court Judge Ruth Chinangwa, the hearing of the matter has been put on hold pending the Supreme Court’s ruling on the application by MEC against the order by the Constitutional Court for a fresh presidential election.
The court has also said it will hear the case 14 days after the Supreme Court’s ruling.
Lawyer representing the concerned citizens, Weasley Mwafulirwa argues that the elections were done concurrently therefore the country should have fresh tripartite elections.

The MPs the determination of the court on the matter will affect them.
In an interview, lawyer representing the sitting MPs Titus Mvalo said his clients are challenging the claimant’s petition saying it lacks basis.
