Peoples Party (PP) has dismissed social media rumors that the party intends to merge with its alliance partner Malawi Congress Party (MCP) to create a single political bloc.
In a press statement made available to Face of Malawi, Ackson Kalaile Banda PP’s National Publicity Secretary said at no time the party’s leadership discussed of the matter.
“At no time has the issue of a merger between the two parties been discussed at any of the party’s levels of decision and policymaking right from grassroots to national executive committee,” read part of the statement.
The statement continued that PP is enjoying the cordial working relationship that is existing with MCP “as a stand-alone political formation”
“Both, MCP and PP plus the other seven parties remain focused to ensuring that the Tonse administration under Dr. Lazarus Chakwera and Dr. Saulos Chilima delivers meaningful and sustainable development to Malawians as per our campaign promises,” Kalaile Banda said.
According to the statement all matters that affect the structure and/or restructuring of the party remain a responsibility of its membership across the nation through rightful consensus according to the law.
“Furthermore, decisions made from such consensus will only be communicated through party sanctioned channels i.e. Publicity department,” reads the statement.
PP has therefore discouraged rumors mongering around its supporters and all Malawians in these very important matters.
