Rupiah Banda has with immediate effect stepped down from MMD presidency leaving the party leadership to MMD National Chairman Michael Mabenga until the convention.
The MMD has been deregistered by the Registrar of Societies for non payment of K390 million in renewal fees since 1991 and risks losing all Parliamentary seats.
The Registrar of Societies says he will inform the Speaker to declare all 53 MMD seats in Parliament vacant because the party has been deregistered. The MMD has 21 days in which to appeal to the Minister of Home Affairs against the decision.
