Atupele denies UDF alliance with MCP, as meet with Chakwera draw mixed feelings

Malawi Congress Party (MCP) president Lazarus Chakwera and United Democratic Front (UDF) leader Atupele Muluzi meeting on Friday continue to hit headlines and attract mixed reactions as Muluzi has denied claims that his party would join an alliance with MCP should there be a presidential election re-run.

Atupele Muluzi (L) and Chakwera:  Na alliance

Ordinary Malawians have taken up in various social media platforms to react with most of them welcoming the meeting as progress.

Others suggested that UTM party president Saulos Chilima should  follow suit, saying in the event of a fresh election, it is only a strong opposition alliance which can dislodge the Democratic Progressive Party (DPP)  from power.

Muluzi however said he did not discuss anything with Chakwera concerning a political alliance.

“We discussed the current political atmosphere in the country and prepare ourselves for the forthcoming election case ruling,” he said.

He said whichever way the Constitutional Court ruling on the elections case expected this  week will go, the country needs a political solution to end the current political impasse.

UDF leader said the meeting he had with Chakera discussed at length on preparing their followers to accept the court ruling.

Muluzi, who finished fourth in the disputed presidential elections, and lost his Machinga North East constituency, met the MCP leader on Thursday night at his residence.

Chakwera said on his Facebook page: “I held fruitful discussions with United Democratic Front president Hon. Atupele Muluzi about how we can overcome our differences and join hands in nation-building going forward.”

Meanwhile, Chakwera has urged Malawians to remain calm, and peacefully accept the Constitutional Court ruling on the elections case .

Citizens who don’t want DPP to continue destroying our country will not accept the judgement favours the ruling party.Coz it will be like the ruling party continues to plunder the resources to themselves.Thats will show no change, Malawians should not be taken for granted too many people are struggling now.Goods are too expensive and those who are working receives little salaries.To buy little things, needs a lot of money.What a country and it is a professor leading the country to poverty.

Democracy starts from within the political party itself. So as you Atupele Muluzi lost your own seat in the heartland of your party’s support leaves you with no standing whatsoever of being a party President.
UDF must be allowed to elect a new leader without a Muluzi imposing himself.
The Hon Chakwera truly erred in agreeing to meet you. For all we know you could have been on a spying mission by APM to confuse the Hon Chakwera. By the way your father is the architect of the corruption we see in the ranks of DPP from top down.
