The People’s Party (PP) says it will embark on substantive dialogue and negotiations from 2013 with other political parties on the possibilities of working together as a common front in the 2014 general elections.
Party President Joyce Banda said this in her response to a letter dated 17th June, 2011 to the People’s Development Movement (PDM).
“I wish to inform you that the People’s Party … will continue its current focus on building the party, its national wide structures, formulating, articulating and disseminating its ideologies, its vision and policies to Malawians and to the International community,” Banda said.
Banda also said the party had reservations with the conduct of some PDM officials whom she said were directly contacting some individual members of PP for bilateral discussions without the knowledge of PP’s leadership.
She did not name the misbehaving PDM officials.
“I hope it will be within your wisdom to discourage PDM members from this conduct as it undermines the confidence and mutual respect that exists between PDM and PP,” she said.
Currently, the two party’s candidates Peter Chihana (PDM) and Chidumba Mkandawire (PP) are the front runners in the Rumphi Central bye elections scheduled for September 6th.Follow and Subscribe Nyasa TV :
