In re: the question of crossing the floor by Members of Parliament (Presidential Referral No. 2 of 2005) [2006] MWHC 22 (07 November 2006)

The president sought an interpretation and determination concerning the amended section 65 of the constitution of Malawi. The questions revolved around the issue of whether section 65, that provided for when a member of parliament would be deemed to have crossed the floor, was inconsistent with sections 32, 33, 35, and 40 of the Constitution and was therefore, invalid.
