The main opposition Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) has distanced itself from the election of the party’s Vice President for the South Kondwani Nankhumwa as leader of opposition.

On Thursday DPP MPs led by the Party Secretary General Grezelder Jeffrey took advantage of the health break to elect leader of opposition.

According to information at hand, 49 out of 59 DPP MPs took part in the election and Nakhumwa emerged victorious after amassing 8 votes whilst the other contestants , including Francis Kasaila got 4 votes and Bright Msaka got 1 vote.

But the move by the said MPs has not gone down well with the party’s top blast.

Speaking in an interview with the press DPP Spokesperson Brown Mpinganjira lambasted the whole election describing it as staged-election.

Mpinganjira then distanced the party from the election saying the party is not 49 MPs.

He said the party will soon meet to resolve the matter.

DPP is currently in leadership crisis as some top blasts are pushing for an early convention to replace the Party President Peter Mutharika.

The top officials claim that Mutharika is too old to rule the party.
