Parties without seats in parliament risk deregistration

Centre for Multiparty Democracy (CMD) says political parties which have failed to get parliamentary seats risk deregistration by the registrar of Political Parties.

Peter Sinusi Driver Kuwani of Mbakuwaku : Debuted in the elections

Executive director of CMD Kizito Tenthani said it was a requirement by law for political parties to have at least a parliamentary seat in order to avoid deregistration.

“If they got five percent of the parliamentary vote or 10 per cent of the local government election vote, they cannot be deregistered,” said Tenthani.

John Chisi, whose Umodzi Party did not win any parliamentary seat, neither the local government poll, said the party would now work with the government.

Leader of the Mbankuwaku Movement, Peter Mbakuwaku Kuwani said he does not regret that his party has not done well, saying this was the first election to participate and would do better next time.

Sincerely based on the 2014 and 2019 elections results that were tolerated and declared credible when in actual fact evidence were all over that they were rigged, I for one don’t see why CMD is wasting my time informing me on this when they are aware that Malawi is back to one party state with dpp as the wamuyaya party just coz they are the only one that has outstanding and credible means of rigging? Why keep up hoodwinking us this time when rigging wounds are still fresh!! Fotsekiiiiiiiiiiii
