State Vice President Dr. Saulos Chilima who is also Tonse Alliance runningmate has said he would be the alliance’s next presidential candidate after Dr. Lazarus Chakwera.

Chilima disclosed during Tonse Alliance rally held at Njambe Freedom Park on Sunday graced by Chakwera who is also Malawi Congress Party (MCP) President and torchbearer of the alliance.

“The leadership [of the alliance] will be rotational. I will be the next presidential candidate after Dr. Lazarus Chakwera. After me, the others [pointing to the podium] will follow,” said Chilima while attracting ululation from the public.

On his part Chakwera said Chilima would double as minister of Finance should Tonse Alliance form the next government after the June 23, 2020 fresh Presidential polls.

Chakwera said Chilima’s skills have been grossly under-utilised by the Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) administration led by President Peter Mutharika.

Tonse Alliance, which also comprises seven other parties, has been keeping under wraps details such as presidential candidate, running mate and other issues. The public only came to know the presidential candidate through a Malawi Electoral Commission (MEC) notice two days before presentation of nomination papers filed under the banner of MCP.
