Former ruling Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) has been asked to seek views on whether the party should call for an early convention or not in order to solve the ongoing fights in the party.
This is according to Chimwemwe Tsitsi a political communications lecturer of the Malawi University of Business and Applied Science (MUBAS) formerly the Polytechnic University.
Tsitsi referred to the continued disagreements that have rocked the party since it was booted out of power in the 2020 fresh presidential elections.
Recently, Samuel Tembenu, DPP’s senior member was seen being castigated by fellow NEC members following his comments on the squabbles in the party.
According to Tembenu it was not surprising that the once mighty party failed to win a single seat in the just ended by-elections attributing to the current leadership fights happening in the party.
Then he asked the party’s politburo to find lasting solutions on the issue.
Tembenu was later seen being removed from the group containing officials from the party the development which angered other senior members.
According to Tsitsi, supporters need to be given an opportunity to give their input on the way forward in dealing with the leadership wrangles.
DPP’s spokesperson Shadreck Namalomba is yet to comment on the matter.
