The ruling Democratic Progressive Party (DPP)Vice President for Central Region, Uladi Mussa Sunday urgedpeople in Lilongwe to continue supporting the party for it to do well in the coming 2019 tripartite elections.
He made the call during public meeting at Mgona in Area 25 in Lilongwe as part of his central region tour.
Mussa sounded optimistic that DPP would win the general elections with more seats in both council and parliamentary because of many development projects have implemented by the party in the country.
He challenged the Vice President, Dr. Saulos Chilima and his movement that he cannot win elections and downplays the assertions from United Transformation Movement (UTM) tha DPP led government is corrupt.
“He should resign..! Why is he choosing to be part and parcel of a corrupt government?”Mussa asked.
He added that Chilimaand UTM are accusing DPP out of frustrations, because they wanted to take over the presidency from President Peter Mutharika.
“There is no way he can dislodge Mutharika, if he could win from the convention, he could not offer such remarks that DPP is a corrupt government,” Mussa bellowed.
The DPP Vice President added Malawi Congress Party (MCP) cannot win next year’s elections because of poor leadership and greedy.
DPP Secretary General (SG),Grezelder Jeffrey said that Mutharika administration is democratic, because no journalist has been arrested on political grounds and it has been the case with previous regimes.
