High Court in Malawi has dismissed attorney general’s application to Supreme Court of appeal against the former’s ruling to register UTM as a political party.

Judge John Chirwa said there are no good grounds in support of the application which the High court can be persuaded.

In a court document Attorney general said “Chirwa erred in law and fact for ordering the registration of UTM within 7 days.”

Registrar of political parties rejected to register UTM because the abbreviation can mean anything.

Leader of UTM is vice president of the Republic of Malawi Dr Saulos Chilima.

Chilima joined the group this year after resigning from the ruling Democratic Progressive Party.

UTM is expected to be registered on Friday, 9 November, 2018.
