THE opposition MDC Alliance has suspended participation in all parliamentary proceedings and announced the expulsion of three senior leaders.
Acting national chairman Job Sikhala confirmed the development at a press conference Thursday as the party responded to the illegal expulsion of four legislators.
The four expelled legislators are Charlton Hwende, Prosper Mutseyami, Thabitha Khumalo, and Senator Lilian Timveous.
Addressing journalists in Harare, Sikhala announced the expulsion of three leaders – Morgen Komichi, Elias Mudzuri, and Douglas Mwonzora.
“As the MDC Alliance, we are disengaging from anything to do with Parliament and from anything to do with Zanu-PF,” he said.
However, he said a final decision about the withdrawal will be taken after consultations with “the party’s structures and other interest groups.”
