Twenty Five Members of the PF Central Committee – MCC have voted to suspend Party Acting President Guy Scott for 60 days, for allegedly usurping powers of the Central Committee.
The letter of suspension has since been served on Dr Scott. But Dr Scott remains acting president of Zambia.
The 25 have since appointed National Chairperson Inonge Wina to act as Party President.
MCC Central Province Chairman Benson Chali says if Ms Wina turns down the appointment, another meeting will be held to choose an acting President of the party.
According to Mr Chali, the MCC was this afternoon expected to convene again to scrutinize names of applications for the PF President, and to decide.
But Bridget Atanga, appointed PF Secretary General yesterday, has maintained that Guy Scott is still the Acting President of the Party.
She says the purported suspension of Dr Scott by the 25 Members of the Central Committee is not only illegal, but is also null and void.
Ms. Atanga says only the President of the party is mandated by its constitution to convene meetings of the central committee and not anyone else.
She has told journalists in Lusaka that the meeting that resolved to suspend Dr Scott is illegal and therefore the decision made is null and void.
Ms. Atanga was flanked by her newly appointed deputy Anthony Kasolo.
And the Law Association of Zambia says the suspension of Dr Scott is a party issue which has no bearing on his functions as Acting Republican President.
LAZ President George Chisanga says Dr. Scott will continue discharging duties of the President.
Mr. Chisanga was speaking during a media briefing in Lusaka today.
