Malawi Congress Party (MCP) Secretary General Eisenhower Mkaka has assured Malawians that Tonse Alliance will still remain intact despite rejecting the party’s application to have amendment on the presidential ballot paper symbol.

Mkaka told the Malawians at Likuni ground in Lilongwe that the alliance is moving forward and nothing can stop them no matter what.

“As an alliance, the president of the Malawi Congress Party (MCP) Dr. Lazarus Chakwera wrote the Malawi Electoral Commission requesting the electoral body to replace the party’s symbol with that of Tonse alliance on the presidential ballot. But the MEC chairperson Dr. Jane Ansah has refused saying they cannot use an alliance symbol.

“ Let me make it clear that even if they do that people will not stop voting for Dr. Chakwera because they have rejected the symbol. This alliance is moving forward no matter what,” he said.

Malawi Electoral Commission (MEC) rejected MCP’s application to have amendment on the presidential ballot paper LOGO.

The Party made the application to MEC to let the party use a fusion of MCP and UTM symbols to reflect the UTM, MCP and other party’s electoral alliance.

But MEC has rejected the application on grounds that MCP did not notify the registrar of political parties on any changes on symbols to be used on ballot paper in the fourth coming presidential election.
