UTM Party says it is ready to consolidate its footprints in each and every part of Salima Central Constituency regardless of geographical setup through campaign rallies to sell their manifesto to the electorate in preparation for May 21 polls.
Speaking in an interview after visiting some parts of the constituency, UTM’s parliamentary candidate Joshua Chisa Mbele says he is satisfied with the turnout of people during the tour.
“We believe that with the official launch of the campaign we are going to deepen the party’s footprints by reaching each and every part of the constituency selling our manifestos to the voters so they can make an informed decision,” he said.
Chisa Mbele further commend the introduction of a law which ban handouts to the electorate during campaign period which he said the system has brought the type of brand politics which is alien and that it has affect the country’s democracy.
He said the system of giving handouts to the people has made most of the electorate chose wrongly because they focus materials given to them from the aspirants instead of manifestos which are very important to scrutinize and make an informed decision in voting the right candidate into power.
Concurring with the aspirant, Constituency Campaign Director James White says the party will make sure to work towards achieving the Malawi Electoral Commission’s (MEC) 2019 campaign theme “consolidating Malawi Democracy through Peaceful Campaign” through putting in place well and disciplined security men and women throughout the campaign period to avoid violence.
He also said the party will follow all the laws related to campaign and elections so that the polls should be free and fair to all in line with the country’s constitution.Follow and Subscribe Nyasa TV :
