Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) and Malawi Congress Party (MCP) officials have been holding political rallies over the weekend across the country and both parties’ main agenda is the prevailing political impasse.
The rulin DPP vice president for the north Goodall Gondwe led the party team in Mzuzu, telling people to always rally behind President Peter Mutharika whom he said won the election.
Gondwe, along with other high-level party leaders from the north who included party treasurer general and minister of Health Jappie Mhango and minister of Lands Symon Vuwa Kaunda.
The DPP officials said Mutharika and the party won the 2019 polls and the opposition just wants to distract the government from implementing robust development programs when it went to court to challenge the results.
In Mchinji, senior MCP officials described what they were holding as the launch of political campaign in readiness for a possible election rerun.
The Constitutional Court is expected to rule in a few months’ time whether the government should hold an election rerun or not following the raging presidential poll results challenge case at the court filed by the UTM president Saulos Chilima and MCP president Lazarus Chakwera.
Mutharika, the DPP and the Malawi Electoral Commission says the election was free, fair, credible and transparent.Follow and Subscribe Nyasa TV :
