After 50 years of independence Malawians are encouraged to vote for who have shown good performance and integrity when they served in public office; those with demonstrated integrity, concern for social justice and courage to speak the truth and those who show genuine desire to work for common good and use power for service, especially of the poor and under privileged,” it stated.

People are discouraged from voting for politicians that had tendencies of self-serving and had potential to use power for self-enrichment.

Those who were arrogant and had no time to listen to the electorate and were of questionable moral standing, including those with proven records of corruption and abuse of power and public resources, those with propensity to use violence and those who put narrow sectarian or ethnic interest before national interest and the common good, must not be voted for.
