The Public Affairs Committe (Pac) members have agreed to take government to task over the economic and political challenges the country is currently experiencing, Nyasa Times has learnt.
Members of the influential quasi-religious organisation met on Wednesday in Blantyre and made a resolution to issue out a communique on the prevailing economic woes that Malawians are going through.
PAC’s Executive Director, Robert Phiri confirmed of the meeting on Friday.
”We indeed met on 23th September and a resolution was passed for us to comment on the economic situation and political direction of the country,” Phiri disclosed.
”The resolution was made in view of the challenges the country is currently facing.”
The communique from the interfaith organization will exert more pressure on President Peter Mutharika’s administration currently being criticized for lacking clear practical strategies to address economic hardships affecting the country.
Pac expects to officially issue out the communique by Wednesday next week.
”We are currently working on it; doing research on some of the topics to be covered in the statement,” Phiri added.
The communique, according to Phiri, will also act as a follow up on some of the 19 key points Pac raised last year.
Malawians are facing economic challenges with inflation rate currently at 23.0 percent.
