Malawi Congress Party (MCP) says it will add its voice on the call by various stakeholders who are pushing for amendments in the current electoral laws of electing a President.
Malawi at the moment uses the first-past-post law when electing the President and many people have challenged this law, saying it does not reflect the majority of Malawians.
Various stakeholders in the country are pushing for the adoption of a 50+1 law so that the elected President should enjoy the majority.
MCP spokesperson Jessie Kabwila said the country needs move on.
“We cannot continue living in a country where a President rules with few votes. This is one of several amendments that MCP wants to see done,” said Kabwila.
She said the party will take the matter to the Business Committee of Parliament in the forthcoming deliberations.
Centre for Human Rights and Rehabilitation (CHRR) and Centre for the Development of People (CEDEP) are among the grouping advocating for the amendment in the Constitution.
Meanwhile the ruling Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) has said it is not ready to discuss the matter.
