Malawi now has 39 political parties with the registration on May 8, 2012 of Chipani Cha Pfuko (CCP).
According to the founding leader of Chipani Cha Pfuko, Davies Chester Katsonga, the party has been created to “democratically add quality to our politics” and to campaign vigorously and convincingly on issues which matter in the everyday lives of all Malawians.
“Chipani Cha Pfuko’s presence will be from Chitipa to Nsanje and Nkhota Kota to Mchinji and to some extent, this is already so and, we shall continue to mobilize in all districts in order to make the party truly national.
“The party’s Manifesto and Constitution will be posted on the internet by Sunday, May 13, 2012. We’ve decided to do this in order to allow Malawians to comment, criticize and make contributions, which delegates to the convention would deliberate on in late July, 2012 – the “date” for Chipani Cha Pfuko’s Convention,” Katsonga said in a statement.
He said that they had announced three months ago that our convention will be held two months after the party is registered and that they would stick to that promise.
“The party shall also be posting a Membership Registration form for those interested to use as they join the family of Chipani Cha Pfuko membership.
“Chipani Cha Pfuko doesn’t want anyone to hold any unelected position longer than is necessary, hence the early convention. The party also wishes both the main documents (Constitution and Manifesto) to belong to the people of Malawi and not just the few individuals with official positions in the party,” said Katsonga.Follow and Subscribe Nyasa TV :
