MCP a national party- Chakwera


The president of the Malawi Congress Party (MCP) Dr Lazarus Chakwera has said MCP is a national party not regional as its opponents claim.

Speaking today at a press briefing, the leader of opposition said its victory in the by-elections is a sign that MCP is for the whole country.

“We are a party that has the welfare of all Malawians at heart regardless of their tribes. We see Malawians as one and our party is for them all,” he said.

He added that the victory of the party in both the central and southern regions is a clear sign that the party is stronger than ever.

“The victory has cemented our credentials as a national party. We also hope the youth will be inspired by these youthful victors to contest in future elections,” he said.

Recently, MCP said that DPP was not a threat to MCP any longer because the governing party had failed Malawians.

“They had two years to prove to Malawians that they can transform the country. So with the remaining time, no miracle will happen to make DPP attractive because it has completely failed to better the lives of Malawians.

“With all these problems the country is facing a year is not enough to solve them all,” he said.

Mec had on several times said that the 2013 elections were rigged and it is putting measures in place to prevent a repeat of the electoral fraud.
