Speaker of Parliament, Richard Msowoya clarified in the National Assembly that Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) is currently a ruling party and not a DPP government.
The Speaker made the clarification when Zomba Changalume MP, Johns Chikalimba of Peoples Party (PP) , on a point of order, querried Member of Parliament(MP) for Mulanje Bale Victor Musowa for saying “we in the DPP government.”
Querried Chikalimba: “Mr Speaker, Sir, is it in order for the Honourable Member to claim that ‘we in DPP government’ when we all belong to the same government? Does he know the difference between government and party? Maybe if he had said we in the DPP party, it would have made sense. But he said ‘we in DPP government’. Then, where are we ourselves?.”
The Speaker then clarified:” We don’t have a DPP government but we have the Malawi Government. So, DPP is a ruling party of that government.”
