The opposition Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) has announced that it will hold its elective conference in July 2023.
The announcement comes amid infighting in the party with the latest being attack of DPP spokesperson Brown Mpinganjira and some top officials by some youth cadets.
Mpinganjira disclosed this in an interview with one of the local daily papers in the country (Nation Publication Limited).
â€œWe have up to July 2023 to hold our convention and we have decided that we will go all the way to July 2023. We have some groundwork to do before a meaningful convention is held.
â€œWe thought we should make that clarification because some people think the convention should be held very soon. I have been very clear that even after the functional review committee, it will be only a meeting of the central committee and NGC [National Governing Council] that will map the way forward. So, nobody should expect a convention this year,” Mpinganjira was quoted as saying.
DPP is currently rocked up in leadership crisis with some top officials calling for an early convention to replace the party President Peter Mutharika.
So far over four people are vying for the party’s President position and these are; Kondwani Nankhumwa who is also leader of opposition, Bright Msaka, DPP spokesperson of legal matters, former Reserve Bank Governor Dalitso Kabambe, Joseph Mwanamvekha, DPP spokesperson on Finance.
