I will stand again and win without runoff — Mutharika
President Peter Mutharika has challenged that in case of a fresh presidential election if the Supreme Court of Appeal does not reverse the Constitution Court judgement for fresh presidential elections which Parliament has set to take place on May 19 2020, he will stand again and will definitely win fresh mandate.
Mutharika was speaking at the political mass rally at Njamba Freedom Park in Blantyre for his Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) and its alliance partener United Democratic Front (UDF) hich booted Malawi Congress Party (MCP) from a 30-year dictatorship in 1994.
He called on all DPP and UDF supporters to register to vote ‘in case of fresh election’ so that they win and continue to govern.
Mutharika also said partnering with UDF, his DPP will gain more votes and be assured of landslide victory.
“Let me assure you that with the DPP and the UDF pulling in one direction, we’ll win the elections again with a landslide,” he promised.
DPP-UDF alliance could lock votes from the Eastern and Southern political regions as the two groupings complement voter bases in a country that largely votes along regional and ethnic lines.
“MCP and UTM will never rule Malawi until 2087.These guys are criminals and evil-Malawians never allow that and I will never allow my fellow Malawians to suffer under these notorious thugs,” Mutharika said.
Malawi is expected to go to the polls for a fresh presidential election on May 19 after a court overturned last year’s vote, citing widespread irregularities.
Parliament set the date while amending the Electoral Act, another of the Constitutional Court’s orders. The amended law allows for a runoff election within 30 days if no candidate receives a majority of votes.
President Mutharika and the Malawi Electoral Commission have appealed the court ruling to the Supreme Court of Appeal.
nyekhwe at its best MCP will never rule Malawi mark my words mwina kwa a chewa komweko

Malawians are already suffering under your clueless leadership you chief notorious thug and your cadets! You will win popeza waitana ma Israeli atatu kuti adzakuthandize kubera mavote. Unazolowera kuba and I am sure uprofessor wakowo unaberanso!
Inde agogo, oops adadi, another landslide like last time, kikikikiiiiiiii.
I expected to hear what the DPP/UDF alliance has brought in, but alas. Blind guides, an eyed Peter leading a total blind Atupele Both having one vision tizikaba.
What do you expect from an alliance of two (2) people Peter and Atupele imposed on two parties DPPand UDF. That is one big Problem of Family Parties, No Consultations with grass-roots. Members have No voice but have to follow blindly expecting to benefit from leftovers.
Malawi is a small country with many tiny parties. Time has come that greedy leaders must stop forming and increasing number of parties. Let’s have two or three parties that will embress the will of Malawians. If the party does not perform like DPP, it has to be voted out. Don’t hide behind simple majority and porous electrol body. They have to work for their employers. Sleeping president will only see one term.
mcp should just be dissolved. zipani za nkhanza sizilowanso m’boma zikatuluka examples UNIP pa zambia, MCP ku malawi, national party pa south africa, KANU pa kenya, popular movement pa zaire. Dr atati mpakati was killed by a letter bomb by mcp operatives. orton and vera chirwa were abducted in zambia and jailed at mikuyu by traditional court with no possibility of appeal. machipisa munthali was sentenced to 6 years (but was not released until 27th year) for being friends with kanyama chiume who was exiled. Solobala ndiye anachita kuveka chiguduli kukaponya m’madzi. Congress atrocities knew no limits interms of nkhanza… Read more »
