United Democratic Front (UDF) presidential candidate Atupele Muluzi has said his party has done all the ground work to secure victory in the May 20 Tripartite elections.
Atupele said this on Saturday during a public rally in the lakeshore district of Nkhotakota where he was treated to a thunderous welcome.
He told the mammoth gathering at Nkhotakota community ground that the UDF party has a unique history that it has been to four elections and has never lost a presidential race.
“We have a history as UDF. We have never lost a presidential race and we are definitely winning this election,” Atupele said confidently.
The UDF leader said his party is taking this election very seriously, accusing the current government that it has failed Malawians.
Amidst chants from supporters majority of which were youth, Atupele urged the people of Malawi to take the May 20 polls as “ a referendum on whether to continue with a government that is clueless on bringing real transformation or replace it with a new administration with a clear and pragmatic agenda. “
He said for example, it is not fair that in a country of population of 14million people only a few should share and enjoy public resources while the majority continue to wallow in abject poverty.
“This country belongs to all of us and not a few politicians and their cronies and therefore the public purse should work for all Malawian,” he said.
He urged the people to go and check their names in the voters roll once the Electoral Commission starts the process in their areas.
The UDF leader also addressed whistle-stop rallies in another lakeshore district of Salima on Sunday.
