1] In terms of the MDC-T constitution, congress, including an EOC is only quorate if it has two thirds of delegates entitled to vote at congress. That translates to something just above 3000 delegates
2] If a quorum is not realized, the meeting proceeds subject to ratification of all decisions by an EOC. It is doubtful whether an EOC can be ratified by another EOC. That’s a point to be debated by lawyers in court
3] Whatever EOC is called must itself be quorate. I know of someone who cannot get a quorum. Zvadhakwa.
4] Effectively therefore, business transacted at an inquorate congress is not valid unless and until ratified. In this case, things remain as they have been
5] During this period, the Acting President can exercise her powers, such as summarily suspending an SG. They call it dog eat dog. You’ve both prepared a dose of poison, unfortunately one must now taste it
6] It is however, clear that we are in a season of illegalities. The court given extension expired on the 30th Nov. An order of court cannot be varied by parties, not even by consent-CFU v Mhuriro
7] Welcome to constitutionalism.
