Mliswa: Forming A GNU Is Unconstitutional & Will Create Anarchy

Member of Parliament for Norton constituency, Temba Mliswa (Independent), said the formation of a coalition government or government of national unity (GNU) in Zimbabwe will be against the provisions of the Constitution and a negation of the will of the electorate.

Writing on microblogging site Twitter, Mliswa argued that forming a coalition government will create anarchy and that such a move will be in direct contravention of clear Constitutional order. He said:

The recent talk of coalition dialogue is a shaky ground because it goes against constitutional dictates and the will of the electorate. That creates anarchy. We are seeking to undermine our own Constitution by going against a clear Constitutional Court order.

Mliswa’s remarks come when the generality of Zimbabwe are longing for a GNU to ease their suffering emanating from a haemorrhaging economy.

In 2009, ZANU PF, MDC-T and MDC-N formed a GNU even though there was no provision in the Constitution for that. An amendment was made on the Lancaster House Constitution that was in place at the time to accommodate a coalition government.
