Vice president Dr Saulos Chilima has said president professor peter Mutharika has the right to appeal nullification of presidential elections by constitutional court.

Chilima who is also president of UTM said this during a press briefing in Lilongwe after press secretary of Mutharika Mgeme Kalirani said Mutharika will appeal the judgment.

Chilima said was ready to work with president Mutharika and all parties for the fresh elections to be free, fair and credible.

“Since the court restored him as the vice president on Monday I have not spoken to Mutharika,” Chilima says

He refused to disclose whether he is enjoying the benefits of vice presidency office.

Chilima said will discuss with UTM national executive committee on forming coalition to meet 50 plus 1 law but was quick to say that formulating alliances for the fresh elections is possible.
