MCP launches steps to revamp party from grass root level

Malawi Congress Party (MCP) has initiated steps to revamp the party from grass root level, saying they want its regional committees be expanded from the current membership of 30 to 90 members.

Gustav Kaliwo: MCP rebuilding

Party officials believe that the party needs to focus primarily on rebuilding structures and revamping its membership to stand a good chance in the next elections, scheduled for 2019.

M MCP Secretary General, Gustave Kaliwo, said the party National Executive Committee does not recognise any regional or district committees elected after May 20, 2014.

“The party will, therefore, be conducting elections in all the regions of the country with the aim of implementing the National Executive Committee resolution.

“The programme and dates for the holding of the elections will be announced in the near future. In line with its constitution the MCP, we will also conduct district elections to elect district office bearers,” Kaliwo said.

He further said all elections held after May 2014 in Southern Region, Blantyre District Urban, Dowa West, Lilongwe Rural West and Mchinji South were not sanctioned by the MCP National Executive Committee and are, therefore, invalid.

Kaliwo said: “The party urges its membership to recognise and avail its structures only to those regional and district committees that were in place up to May 2014.”

He invited all those wishing to join MCP and those wishing to participate in the forthcoming elections to register with their local MCP branch or by contacting the Administrative Secretary at the MCP Headquarters in Lilongwe.

Political observers however, commend Lazarous Chakwera’s MCP for demonstrating maturity by opting to focus its energies on the revival of its structures, instead of poking holes at DPP’s controversial election win, which would have been a futile exercise.

Big Man, you are still living in the past. The mcp you are referring to is not the same as the current one. Even the leading actors have changed. In fact your stupid dpp, pp and udf have absolutely destroyed the development and economy of malawi through your massive corruptions and thieving of govt resources. Furthermore don’t forget you have some characters in your govt who were staunch supporters of the old mcp and they know what they did during that time. These characters are not part of the new mcp but they are in your govt, are you condemning… Read more »

Leave “Big Man” alone!!! His observations are short, but insightful, and almost invariably, spot-on. His analyses are contemporary, not living in the past, as you may claim.
