Tit for tat in Tonse Alliance: AFORD to field own Presidential Candidate in 2025

Date:

One of the Tonse Alliance partners, Alliance for Democracy (AFORD) has hinted that the party will field its own candidate in 2025 general election.

The development comes barely days after Malawi Congress Party (MCP) Second Vice President Harry Mkandawire endorsed President Dr. Lazarus Chakwera as the party’s torchbearer.

“Malawi Congress Party has made a decision that we want Dr. Lazarus Chakwera to be our presidential candidate. There is nothing to hide,” said Mkandawire.

AFORD President Enoch Chihana has confirmed of the development in an interview with the press.

“Why should AFORD exist if we cannot afford to field a candidate? Then we must stop being a political party. Does someone really expect us to always support others?” he asked.

Meanwhile, MCP spokesperson Maurice Munthali has said Tonse Alliance partners are free to declare their status ahead of 2025 polls.
