JB Sold PP to Chakwera, Mia

Opposition Malawi Congress Party (MCP) and People’s Party (PP) have formed a coalition ahead of 21st May Tripartite Elections.

According to Information made available to Maravi Express, PP’s president Dr. Joyce Banda has been meeting MCP’s President Dr. Lazarus Chakwera and his running-mate Sidik Mia to map the way forward.

Banda who is among the nine presidential candidates for the 2019 Presidential Elections is expected to announce to have withdrawn from the race soon, thus according to inside sources from the party.

Recently,  Banda’s People’s Party  also formed an electoral alliance with Vice President Dr Saulos Chilima’s UTM party but the ‘marriage’ only lasted for two days after  UTM failed to comply with some of the terms and conditions.
