Lunte MP Felix Mutati, former MMD minister, remains expelled from the former ruling party, after the High Court refused to grant him an injunction on an event that has already occurred. The MMD expelled Mutati in February 2016 for secretly working with the opposition UPND party, after Mutati and other MMD MPs challenged the MMD’s decision to form an alliance with the current ruling PF party. Mutati has appealed this week’s ruling to the Supreme Court, arguing that the lower court’s decision would bar him from contesting the presidency of the MMD, with a view to contest the presidential election in August 2016.
