I have been contemplating possible implications/consequences of two statements which have been attributed to certain local political operatives. The statements are firstly, “the President is illegal” and secondly, “Parliament is dead”. The following questions arise:
(i) Can a President who is illegal legally set a date for elections?
(ii) Can there be a legal Leader of the Opposition if Parliament is dead, or do the two die together?
(iii) If a legal Leader of the Opposition does not exist, are actions of the immediate past Leader of the Opposition purporting to still function in that capacity unlawful?
A response from anyone especially those versed in the appropriate theory whether of Constitution or Contradiction or whatever would be welcome.
