Alex Magaisa asked ( about Amos Chibaya ) : "It is a crude attempt by the MDC-T to import some of the flexibility of the appointing system into an electoral system. Sympathisers point to the appointment of Amos Chibaya to replace the late Thamsanga Mahlangu last year as an example of the application of this power. Yet of course in that case it was perfectly understandable because a vacancy had arisen after the death of the incumbent. It had to be filled but this case is different because new vacancies are being created. Where does it stop? How many more vacancies can the president create?" "Even if it is constitutional, the issue is bigger than legality. As we always say the spirit of constitutionalism is more fundamental than constitutionality. Having powers to appoint in an election model produces very awkward results. In fact it presents a serious moral hazard which is that the president can use it to appoint his or her own people to rival elected ones in the event that his or her own preferred candidates lose at election. It is prone to abuse"
