MCP President given powers to negotiate UTM Alliance

Malawi Congress party MCP National Executive Committee NEC has given its president Dr Lazarus Chakwera powers to enter negotiations with his UTM counterpart Dr Saulos Chilima on the prospect of an alliance between the two parties.

In a statement MCP national publicity secretary Maurice Munthali says NEC passed the resolution at its meeting of February 28 2020.

Munthali says this is in pursuant to article 3 sub section 12 of the constitution of the party on the need to work with other political parties with which MCP shares a common vision.

“The resolution also gives the president full powers to constitute a qualified team to support his pursuit of an alliance through negotiations with UTM team designated for that purpose,” Munthali discloses

He adds that by implication the president has been given the mandate to ascertain such terms of an alliance agreement as will be most beneficial for Malawi and its people.

The MCP NEC believes that empowering the party president with this mission is the best way to harness the national gains that both parties have cultivated together with all patriotic Malawians over the last eight months in which the whole nation fixed its gaze on the constitutional court where the MCP and UTM presidents were both petitioners.

The executive committee is confident that the negotiations with UTM will be conducted in good faith and bear fruit to help galvanize the majority of the electorate towards victory and lasting change in fresh elections scheduled for Tuesday 19th May 2020 knowing that the court case was a fight for justice and the political rights of every voter aggrieved by Malawi Electoral Commission’s mismanagement of 2019 presidential elections.

Munthali concludes by saying that this resolution conforms to Malawi Congress Party’s well established value of contact and dialogue, its inimitable sensitivity to aspirations of Malawians and quest for a new Malawi marked by efforts at uniting Malawians as enshrined in the second pillar of Chakwera SUPER Hi-5

The resolution has been made as the ruling Democratic Progressive Party DPP and United Democratic Front UDF announced their alliance
