Running mates face-off on Zodiak: Question Times Malawi

Presidential running mates of the four front-runners in the May polls are set to meet for a public debate organised by private broadcaster Zodiak Broadcasting Station (ZBS) on Saturday March 8 at Bingu International Conference Centre in the capital Lilongwe .

The running mates, according to ZBS managing director Gospel Kazako, are expected to discuss the value they will bring to government should their political parties make it.

Kazako said the debate would be interesting and informative as governing People’s Party (PP) running mate Sosten Gwengwe, opposition DPP’s Saulos Chilima, UDF’s Dr Godfrey Chapola and MCP’s Richard Msowoya, would come together to discuss what they have to offer if they assume office after May 20 Tripartite Elections

“This is a very important debate because running mates are equally crucial when Malawians have to make a decision on who to vote for. Running mates, if a misfortune happen, God forbid, one may become a Sate President,” Kazako said.

Kazako: “We should be able to document their promises and follow –up when they take power.”

He said this will encourage accountability and transparency.

The debates will in the coming days  feature other political parties presidential running mates to Petra’s Kamuzu Chibambo, PPM’s Mark Katsonga Phiri, Chipani cha Pfuko’s Davis Katsonga, National Salvation Front’s James Nyondo, Tisintha Alliance’s George Nnensa, United Independent Party’s Helen Singh and Umodzi Party’s Professor John Chisi.

And at the height of the campaign there will be Presidential debates featuring the main hopefuls.
