The battle for power in MMD has depended with former MMD Lunte Member of Parliament, Felix Mutati now being declared as the new party president.
National Youth Chairperson, Howard Kunda has told Breeze News that Mr Mutati has gone through unopposed at a national convention currently taking place in Kabwe.
Mr Kunda says that Dr. Nevers Mumba is no longer president for MMD adding that he was invited to attend the convention but he declined knowing that he would not win.
He says that Dr Mumba has no reason to refute the outcome of the national convention adding that they are now about to elect the new MMD NEC, National Executive Committee.
But MMD Acting National Secretary Reverend Ruben Sambo says that Dr Mumba remains the president because MMD has not held any election.
Reverend Sambo says that the law will take its course over claims by the Mutati faction that the former Lunte law maker is MMD president.
