Opposition People’s Party (PP) has turn down the claims by the party’s Regional Governor for the North, Reverend Mzomera Ngwira, MP, that the Right Honourable Khumbo Kachali becomes the interim leader of the party in the absence of Her Excellency Dr. Joyce Banda who is currently abroad.

This has been disclosed in a Press Statement released on Monday signed by PP Secretary General Ibrahim Matola, saying Ngwira’s decision does not reflect the views of the Party.

“Reverend Mzomera’s sentiments are false. These claims do not reflect the position of the People’s Party in as far as its leadership is concerned.

“It is only at the People’s Party National Convention that decisions like this one are made. The People’s Party constitution stipulates that the President shall hold office for a period of five years. Her Excellency Dr. Joyce Banda’s mandate runs up to 2017 when her position shall be up for grabs,” reads in part the statement.

The statement however says that the Party is delighted with the return of Kachali, saying this will help in rebuilding process.

Kachali dumped PP just before the 2014 tripartite election which so the then Opposition Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) under President Professor Arthur Peter Mutharika.
