Opposition People’s Party (PP) Deputy Publicity Secretary Faustace Chirwa has resigned from the party and from her position following Joyce Banda’s decision to withdraw from the forthcoming May 21 tripartite election.

Chirwa’s resignation comes barely two days after the resignation of PP Deputy Regional Secretary Leonard Mphiza who challenged Banda during the Party’s convention held at Robins Park in the commercial capital Blantyre.

In a letter addressed to PP Secretary General, Chirwa has cited PP alliance with the main opposition Malawi Congress Party (MCP) as the reason for her resignation.

“The reason for my resignation is that I had endorsed the initial decision the PP National Executive Committee had made a month ago to go into an alliance with the United Transformation Movement/Party for the sole purpose of supporting Rt Hon Saulos Chilima to lead this country after 21 May 2019 guided by his transformative vision he has for this country! I was happy with the Party’s earlier stand.

“I honour the Party’s abrupt change of thought and its decision to form an alliance with the Malawi Congress Party and the part the PP President would play in the Alliance supported by the PP National Executive Committee including its Membership and wish the Alliance well,” wrote Chirwa.

She added: “Since my whole purpose for supporting the Former President and her Party has been to see her lead the Nation after May 21 her unexpected change of heart and her withdrawal from the Presidential Race has totally devastated me and undermined my advocacy in promoting her to be the country’s leader once again! I was always proud to associate myself with the Former President and to serve on her NEC. Suffice to mention that I don’t subscribe to the decision to work with MCP and it’s leadership, not for any negative reason but simply guided by my right to freedom of association!

“With humility I thank the Former President and PP President for her support and her trust in me to serve her as her Deputy Publicity Secretary and NEC Member. God should always bless her.”

Meanwhile PP is yet to comment on Chirwa’s resignation.
