A legal commentator believes the constitution is clear on the need for the president to appear before parliament if summoned by legislators.

There has been tug of war between the opposition and the government on the matter.

Calls by the opposition for President Peter Mutharika to appear before parliament to give a detailed account on emerging critical issues have always been ignored by the government.

President Mutharika only appears in parliament when he officially opens sessions.

This is contrary to other democracies like South Africa, where Presidents are summoned to appear before parliament to give comprehensive answers on various issues.

Representatives of the government cite a lack of required standing orders as the basis for their justification for the president not to appear before parliament.
