In a report released on Tuesday, titled Inclusivity and Federalism in Malawi, the PAC said some of the driving factors of federalism in the southern African country include electoral system, separation of powers, social discrimination, regionalism and ethnicity.

“As PAC, we recommend reforms in the economic, public and governance structures to be linked because any reform operated in isolation is likely to fail,” it said.

The body also suggested that the electoral reforms such as the requirement for a winning candidate to attain at least 50 percent of the total votes plus one more vote.

The forum noted that Malawi should introduce a senate for the sake of inclusivity and social cohesion.

Federalism is a system that brings devolution in the country and was a hot issue among Malawians for the past four months, with some people pushing for its adoption while others were against the idea.
