Member of Parliament for Salima South, Uladi Mussa, said Democratic Progressive Party (DPP), should not change a winning team for the forthcoming 2019 Tripartite General Elections.
He said this Wednesday during a DPP Members of Parliament (MPs) press briefing at Golden Peacock, in Lilongwe where they issued a communique endorsing the candidature of President Prof. Arthur Peter Mutharika for the party in the 2019 elections.
Mussa said DPP had Mutharika while in opposition in 2014 but managed to win elections and take over government meaning people had trust and confidence in him.
“Mutharika is a winner and will always be a winner. You don’t change a winning team and 2019 elections, DPP is surely poised to win and remain in government,” he pointed out.
Mussa who was among the pioneers of the ruling DPP in 2005 under late President Bingu wa Mutharika regime noted that in politics avoid experiencing things especially regarding an election saying this is a crucial moment where you need to safeguard your supremacy and support.
He said Malawians are ready to support Mutharika for a second term of his 10-year constitutional mandate to rule the country.
Mussa said it would be very unfair for certain individuals to come out saying the president should pave way for someone after only serving five years of his 10 years as enshrined in the country’s constitution.
