Center for Democracy and Economic Initiative (CDEDI) has asked the country’s opposition parties to get organized and rise in putting the Tonse Alliance administration to task.

This has been said in a press statement seen by Face of Malawi reporter.

CDEDI remarks follows the development in which President Lazarus Chakwera appeared before Parliament to answer questions from Members of the house.

According to CDEDI, leader of opposition Kondwani Nankhumwa missed the opportunity to take President Chakwera to task on what CDEDI called his (Chakwera) lies.

CDEDI is accusing the Tonse Alliance administration of deferring some of its campaign promises which were very attractive to Malawian voters in the fresh presidential elections.

“On the other hand, CDEDI is saddened with the lukewarm approach that was taken by the Leader of Opposition in Parliament Hon. Kondwani Nankhumwa who instead concentrated on very trivial issues,” reads the statement.

The statement added; “CDEDI would like to take this opportunity to caution the opposition political parties to get organized and rise to the occasion to provide checks and balances to the Tonse Alliance government.”

In the last four months of being in government, Chakwera-Chilima administration has clearly shown signs of deceit and manipulation, according to the statement.

“The dictates of democracy require that there should be the opposition as a government in waiting to keep those in power in check to among many others protect the weak and stop those in power from abusing their authority,” it reads.
