Swaziland: another constitutional crisis in the make

On Wednesday 3 October, the Swazi House of Assembly passed a vote of no confidence on the government, in line with provision in the new constitution promulgated in 2005. The government however is refusing to accept this decision and declares it will ignore the motion and continue its activities. According to the constitution, the king is now expected to dissolve the government, but the monarch has yet to provide any official statement on the matter. This is the beginning of another constitutional crisis in Swaziland.
