In Defense of Morgan Tsvangirai Legacy (IDTML) has said MDC president Nelson Chamisa’s term of office as interim president has expired and should stop representing the opposition.
IDTML says Chamisa should pave way for an extra-ordinary congress to appoint a new president as stipulated by the MDC constitution. The group says Chamisa’s tenure expired at midnight of 14 of February 2019 as stipulated in article 9.21.1 of the MDC constitution. IDTLM spokesperson Webber Chinyadza said a process to file an urgent chamber application with High Court is in motion if Chamisa attempts to ignore the constitution. Said Chinyadza:
For clarity article 9.21.1 of MDC constitution states that; In the event of death or resignation of the president, the deputy assumes the role of acting president pending the holding of extraordinary congress that shall be held to elect a new president which extraordinary congress to be held no later than a year from the death or resignation of the former president
