Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) presidential candidate Peter Mutharika has said his party will form the next government after May 20 elections, saying he has already drawn up plans of work of action in the start-up days of his State House days.
Mutharika was speaking at Mchengautuwa in the northern city of Mzuzu on Tuesday when he accompanied by his running mate Saulos Chilima addressed a political rally.
The DPP leader is in the northern region for a series of campaign meetings.
He told crowds that “Malawi needs to go forward with DPP,” saying the party has a blue print that will be the guide of the development for the nation.
Taking his turn, Chilima, said Malawi needs stability and progress, saying the DPP government would promote me unity that binds people from across the race, ethnic and political divide.
Earlier, DPP were denied by Mzuzu City Council permission to hold a rally at Mchengautuba Primary School grounds.
Mzuzu City Council Chief Executive officer (CEO) Thomas Chirwa said his director of administration advised the party officials to go ahead with meeting on condition that the school has no classes in the afternoon.
“My office and that of the Divisional Education manager advised the party to shift elsewhere or stop the rally,” said Chirwa.
His directive follows a petition the chairman of Mchengatuba primary school development committee Meza Mbizi presented to the council not to allow a political rally at their school because children learn in the morning as well as afternoon.
