5 parties sign peace pact ahead of Malawi judgement day

Five political parties have signed a peace pact to ensure  peace before, during and after the Constitutional Court election case ruling on Monday.

Kizito Tenthani: Parties have displayed goodwill towards peace

According to Centre for Multiparty Democracy (CMD) executive director Kizito Tenthani, secretary generals of the Malawi Congress Party (MCP), United Democratic Front (UDF), Democratic Progressive Party (DPP), Peoples Party and Alliance for Democracy (Aford) signed the pact on Thursday in Lilongwe.

Conspicuously missing is UTM which is yet to give reasons for its failure to sign the peace pact.

“This pact ensures that there is peace in the aftermath of the court ruling. I expect the political parties to walk the talk, to live by their word,” said Tenthani.

The country, especially Lilongwe experienced violent protests in the aftermath of the May 21 tripartite elections.

In the land of lawlessness these pacts do not work. Imagine you take an oath only to rig elections. You sign peace pact only to use tippex in an election.

The assumption you made was that the leaders will influence their followers – miscalculated because in times like this followers defy their leaders if they are to fight for their birthright. What you should have done at least was to publicize such an event with a… Read more »

Even if it is just symbolic, it still sends a message of intention to the followers. As usual Matama Party shunning this important accord yet pretending to be preaching peace.

Malawi belong to the citizens.

Wake Up Malawians, how can people signed peace pact before judgement day? Waiting for the judgement first, then you have to call the peace process while everyone knows what exactly happened during the election process.So you mean parties should just accept whatever comes just for the peace.Already parties and their supporters failed to accept that Peter Munthalika won clean and square.What kind of thinking is this?
