Leader of opposition Kondwani Nankhumwa on Friday met United Democratic Front (UDF) President Atupele Muluzi ahead of the forthcoming 2020/2021 National Budget session at the August House in the capital Lilongwe.
Muluzi was the runningmate of immediate past President Professor Arthur Peter Mutharika in the fresh Presidential polls held on June 23, 2020.
Nankhumwa confirmed of the meeting in a statement posted on his official facebook page seen by this publication.
According to Nankhumwa, the meeting was aimed at how the opposition can form a formidable force in the National Assembly.
âI was also privileged to meet in audience UDF President Rt Hon Atupele Austin Muluzi. As Leader of Opposition it could be out of order for me just to go to the forthcoming budget meeting without consulting my brother in opposition who I have great respect for.
âWe therefore agreed to present in Parliament a formidable and constructive opposition side in our quest to provide checks and balances to government affairs,â said Nankhumwa.
Meanwhile it is not known as to whether the DPP, UDF marriage will continue or not considering the outcome of the fresh polls.
The two parties were booted out of power by Tonse Alliance led by Dr. Lazarus Chakwera and Dr. Saulos Chilima.
