Following recent election defeat in Mchinji West constituency and two wards coupled with not-so-convincing wins in two other wards in the just ended by-elections, ruling Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) has made some changes in the party.
The changes come amid rumours that some of the DPP officials are calling for the return of the party’s master planner Ben Phiri to the core of the party’s strategy team.
According to information sourced by this publication, some top officials in the Party are not happy with the role played by the Country’s Vice President Dr. Saulos Chilima who was chairman of the campaign committee in the by-elections.
Due to this downturn, the ruling DPP has appointed former Regional Governor Charles Jika to the position of Deputy National Director for Elections.
The Party has appointed Mr. Julius Paipi to be its Regional Governor for the Eastern Region.
DPP Secretary General, Eckrain Kudontoni confirmed of the changes in an interview with the press, saying the appointments are with immediate effect.
