Assembly for Democracy and Development (ADD) President Dr. Cassim Chilumpha who is also former Vice President has endorsed Malawi Congress Party (MCP) President Dr. Lazarus Chakwera ahead of the May 21 tripartite election.
The development comes barely a three weeks after the High Court barred Chilumpha from contesting in the polls as Presidential candidate for Tikonze Peoples Movement (TPM) for not following proper procedures.
Chilumpha confirmed of his endorsement in a statement posted on his official facebook page seen by faceofmalawi reporter.
âAfter a thorough consultation with ADD party supporters, friends and family, I have decided to endorse the candidature of Dr. CHAKWERA and the mighty MCP. This follows the disqualification of my candidature by MEC recently.
âTherefore, all my supporters are being advised to render all their support to MCP candidates,â wrote chilumpha.
He added: âWe strongly believe that MCP is the only solution to Malawi’s governance sickness.
âMay Allah bless us all as we are working so hard to make Chakwera President.â
Malawi will hold its second tripartite election on May 21 and three Parties namely; MCP of Chakwera, United Transformation Movement (UTM) President Dr. Saulos Chilima and Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) Peter Mutharika are favored to win the polls.
