PP courts tiny parties for electoral alliance ahead of 2019 Malawi watershed polls

Erstwhile ruling  Peoples Party (PP) of former president Joyce Banda has met six parties outside parliament in a bid to form an electoral alliance to oust President Peter Mutharika at the ballot box in the forthcoming elections.

Mark Katsonga: Still talking to PP

PP’s secretary general Ibrahim Matola, the party’s Vice President (eastern region)  Roy Kachale Banda  and other top party officials met the parties at Agma offices of Mark Katsonga at Maselema in Blantyre on Monday.

Matola was elusive when called to shed light on the meeting. But Katsonga of PPM confirmed the meeting took place.

“We have not yet finished our discussions, we will be meeting again soon. Hopefully, we will conclude our discussions by the end of the month,” he said.

Other parties that attended the meeting include Mafunde, National Unity Party and Assembly for Democracy.

Matola claimed the PP remains strong at grass root although the defections affected the national executive committee.

Zipani zantundu umenewo or zitakhalapo 200, simungawine in the forth coming tripartite elections in 2019. Ngati mukufuna kudzakhalanowo m,boma, just join MCP individually. If you go there as a party, mudzailepheletsa MCP kuwina ma vote. Remember,no MGWIRIZANO had won the elections in MALAWI since the introduction of multiparty.

Why wasting money for a doomed to failure project, it’s certainly obvious that you will not win even 10% of the general elections votes
