Presidential candidate Peter Mutharika of the opposition Democratic Progressive Party (DPP), which governed Malawi from 2004 to April 2012 when his brother president Bingu wa Mutharika died at the climax of poor governance and economic woes, said on Saturday that he strongly believes his party will reclaim victory in the May 20 Tripartite elections.
Mutharika was speaking at Masintha Ground in the capital Lilongwe to a huge crowds which attended the official launch of the party’s election campaign, promising to arrest the country’s economic slide.
Accompanied by his running-mate Saulos Chilima, late president Mutharika’s widow, Callista Mutharika and the party’s bigwigs, Mutharika said DPP, which lost power to the reigning People’s Party of the country’s Head of State Joyce Banda who took over after the death of Bingu in April 2012, will implement people-centered development approaches, long term infrastructure developments and people-driven economic paradigms
