Opposition MPs Boycott Parliament

Opposition members of parliament have boycotted parliamentary deliberations this afternoon.

The conflict erupted after MP for Blantyre city central Themba Mkandawire raised a standing order to vote on what was supposed to be discussed in the house.

The ruling side said ministers should answer questions from members of parliament.

“53 MPs voted in favour, 42 opposed while 98 were absent,” said Radio Islam reporter who was in the chamber.

However, opposition MPs went out of the chamber saying DPP led government is denying Malawians their right.

In his remarks, leader of the house Kondwani Nankhumwa said the action of opposition MPs is not understandable since all businesses are in the order paper.
