Small parties agree not to field presidential candidates

Officials from the country’s small parties have agreed not to field presidential candidades but instead support parties with a following.

Nnesa and Tisintha alliance members: No fielding presidential candidate

The small parties are currently in talks with Peoples Party (PP)  for a possible electoral alliance.

President of People’s Progressivd Movement (PPM) Mark Katsonga and Mafunde president George Nnesa confirmed the development.

“We will not do what we did in 2014, each one of us fielding as a presidential candidate,” said Katsonga.

He said this was a waste of time and resources.

Nnesa however said the parties would still field parliamentary and local government election candidates.

He said the parties are reorganising structures to ensure their candidates win the election.

There were atleast eight parties in the 2014 election but only four; the DPP, MCP, PP and UDF made a good showing as they won parliamentary seats.

Mpando uwu musiyireni Chilima ena atekeseka heavy mainly MCP. Ntcheu, Dedza and large parts of Mchinji, Balaka, Mwanza, Neno and the metro areas of BT and LL. The best runningmate would have been Muluzi but it’s likely he will partner Munthalika. Msowoya isn’t that bad as he will lockout the North. Wish him all the best otherwise analuma papakulu sunakatha kumeza mwanna💪💪💪

Have agreed to support a party with a large following, or they should support the party with the best leadership and agenda?

Good move small parties. But aligning with the dead PP is the same as you standing individually. In fact some of you small parties could be bigger than PP at the moment.
