Young African Leaders Initiative YALI has advised the speaker of the national assembly Nelly Muti to be objective and to be above partisan politics.
Reacting to the recent judgment by the constitutional court that suspended Patriotic Front PF MPs who had their seats nullified should go back to parliament YALI Spokesperson Isaac Mwanza said he is against calls by some stakeholders that the speaker should either be suspended or sued.
He said the decision of the constitutional court is an embarrassment to the office of the speaker especially that Ms. Muti is a senior lawyer on the bar.
Mr. Mwanza advised speakers to avoid being used constantly in political battles even though they join to be politicians as well as committing crimes that would lead to impeachment.
“The jurisdiction to interpret the constitution is reserved for the constitutional court and that’s what madam Nelly Mutti would have done to avoid entangling herself into interpreting the constitution and enforcing it wrongly as she did,” he said.
