Addressing the cloud of people at the venue, DPP President Professor Arthur Peter Mutharika said he is ready to lead for the alliance as torch bearer in the presidential elections slated to take place on May 19, 2020.
â€˜If supreme court will not change the decision made by constitution court, am ready to contest in fresh elections, â€™said Mutharika adding that MCP and UTM will never rule this country.
On this note, DPP leader has since implored people of all walks of life including the sick to go and register when voter registration commences.
However, Mutharika has applauded his supporters for conducting peaceful protests national wide.
â€˜we have shown the world that it is possible to have peaceful demonstrations. No single person stoned shops or any other property during our parades, â€™said Mutharika whose party was recently demonstrating against verdict by constitutional court to have fresh elections following the ruling that 21 may,2019 presidential elections were marred by numerous irregularities.
