Chilumpha confirmed the development in a statement made available to faceofmalawi reporter.

“This communiqué serves to notify the general public that the ADD party and I have decided to pull out from both Tikonze alliance and the alliance we reached with UTM. This has resulted from failure by the UTM to honour some of the terms of the agreement. Suffices to say that we have written MEC chair requesting change of dates as to when the ADD will present its nomination papers. MEC has written us indicating that a new date will be allocated.
