LILONGWE (MalawiTalk) –Attorney General (AG) Dr Chikosa Silungwe has been embarrassed by Parliament after his legal advice has been rejected with regards to the fate of two Malawi Electoral Commission (Mec) Commissioners.
In his legal opinion, Silungwe advised government against firing the two commissioners namely Mrs Jean Mathanga and Miss Linda Kunje.
In an apparent response to Silungwe, Public Appointments Committee (Pac) of Parliament has maintained its stand to fire, saying they two are ncompetent.
Chairperson of the committee, Mrs Joyce Chitsulo, has confirmed the development.
Last year, the previous Pac had recommended to former president Peter Mutharika to fire the Commissioners but Mutharika said he could not, arguing the Commissioners were not given an opportunity to bring lawyers.
