Malawi Congress Party (MCP) President Dr. Lazarus Chakwera has said the party will win the forthcoming fresh polls scheduled for May 19, 2020.
Chakwera said this in a statement posted on his official facebook seen by Faceofmalawi reporter.
According to the statement, Chakwera said MCP is ready to rescue the country the ruling Democratic Progressive Party (DPP).
‚ÄúThis is a time for us to rescue our Republic from those who have hijacked it to enrich themselves. A Republic is a form of government in which supreme power rests with the citizens, and it is to them that elected officials are answerable,‚ÄĚ wrote Chakwera.
Chakwera further said that the DPP administration has officials who resist answering the people’s demands.
‚ÄúThey have fought our petitions in the Judiciary, but we have defended your rights there and won. They have fought our bills in the Legislature, but we have defended your rights there and won.
‚ÄúThey will fight our campaign to rescue the Executive, but we will defend your rights there and win. Whether they like it or not, #MalawiIsRising,‚ÄĚ he added.
The constitutional court nullified the May 21, 2019 polls on February 3, 2020 and called for fresh polls within a period of 150 days.
The court also called for the national assembly to assess the capabilities of the current commissioner of the Malawi Electoral Commission (MEC) on handling the forthcoming Presidential polls.
