The meeting appointed Paurina Mpariwa as the acting Secretary General.

The meeting resolved to reject the Supreme Court ruling because:

– The Supreme Court ruling had the effect of promoting Morgan Komichi to a substantive Chairman when he was not.

– Thokozani Khuphe had long since left the MDC before the death of Morgan Tsvangirai

– The terms of Office of the office bearers had expired and therefore they could not hold an extraordinary congress.

The meeting resolved to call a National Council meeting on 6 June where Komichi and Mwonzora should attend.
