The MDC Alliance has appointed a new leader of the opposition and chief whip in Parliament after the MDC-T led by Thokozani Khupe recently recalled the MDC Alliance legislators.
In a letter to the Speaker of Parliament, Advocate Jacob Mudenda, the party said:
RE: Opposition Leadership in Parliament

1. Hon Lynette Karenyi
Acting leader of opposition in Parliament
2. Hon Erick Murai

In a move viewed as a response to the appointments, Khupe Wednesday recalled 8 more MDC Alliance senators.
