According to the state media reports, the sanctions were placed by the disciplinary committee of the CPDM party after examining files of close to a hundred party members over violation of party rules during the February twin polls.

The committee proceeded with hearing of the cases on individual bases for a period of one week before sending a final report to the party’s hierarchy for the necessary sanctions to take effect.


In a press release of September 9, the 90 party members were found guilty of diverse irregularities in respecting party rules during the said elections and have been sanctioned according to categories of their offenses.

Following this release, the sanctioned members who come from across the 10 regions of the country have been grouped into 10 categories, ranging from warnings, and suspension to complete dismissal from the party.
