Who should replace Chakwera as MCP leader? Have your say

Presidential hopeful Lazarus Chakwera of the liberation movement-turned-political party – Malawi Congress Party (MCP) – that ruled the country for decades in one-party dictatorship, will be barred by his party constitution to contest for presidency for the third time luck in 2024 and will have to s pass on the baton to a candidate that will replace him. In the MCP rank and file, who do you think among these can take over the party leadership:

Chakwera (r) with former president Joyce Banda

MCP first vice president Sidik Mia

Acting leader of opposition Lobin Lowe, MP

MP Sosten Gwengwe

MP Sam Kawale

Dr Cornelius Mwalwanda MP

Eisenhower Mkaka MP

Or suggest any other name

Chakwera  hasled the MCP into the 2014 and 2019 elections, coming second to President Peter Mutharika at the polls.

MCP  has lost all five presidential elections since 1994 but Chakwera has made great efforts to re-energise its base.

  • 64 years old
  • Chakwera was president of the Malawi Assemblies of God from 1989 to 2013
  • he was endorsed by former president Joyce Banda in March

This is an internal MCP matter. What is your interest into this? Chakwera has never came second to APM twice first. Secondly their constitution can be amended if the party feels so. So keep yourself out of this.

I think this paper is full of cadets. The elections period is not over linda madzi apite ndipo uziti ndadala. Chakwera mukumutchurayu akuchititsani manyazi mawa. Ndipo mudzachita chitungwi pemphero langa ndilakuti musadzafe ndi ma BP. MCP will go to convention in 2023 and you are talking about MCP now why talk of that nkhalamba yopanda manoyo.

I agree none of the Above …MCP has no problems when it comes to Replacing Leadership …We have had Chakuamba,Tembo and Chakwera .Chakwera was Not Even in Mainstream Politics …It’s an Insult for Some Cadet to be Insinuating that Only Those Already in Politics Now can lead MCP…DPP leaders have Been Muntharika and Muntharika .So worry about Your Family and Tribal Parties not Our Mighty MCP .If We Want We Will Give Chakwera Another Chance …We should be Talking about Changing Voting System to 50 + 1 ,Banning Use of Tippex on Electrol Materials,Making sure that 100 percent of results… Read more »
