DPP Claims to have Solutions To the Country’s Ailing

In anticipation of the 2025 tripartite elections, Malawi’s main opposition party, the Democratic Progressive Party
(DPP), has unveiled Professor Peter Mutharika as its presidential candidate for the upcoming presidential race.

Addressing a gathering at Njamba Freedom Park in Blantyre on May 12, 2024, Mutharika, expressed confidence to tackle the country’s economic challenges.

He pledged to address issues such as forex shortage and high inflation rate within two years in office if elected.

“People should be optimistic as DPP is coming again to curb the economic problems brought by the Tonse Alliance,” Mutharika assured the nation.

Reflecting on his decision to enter the political arena once more, Mutharika stated that he is confident enough to
win the 2025 presidential elections.

“Today I want to answer Malawians that I will contest as president and I will win the election,” emphasizing his commitment to serving the nation.

Highlighting the achievements of the DPP regime, Mutharika cited infrastructure projects such as the Malawi University of Science and Technology (MUST), Bingu International Convention Center (BICC), Bingu National Stadium and some road networks. He also pledged to continue with social welfare programs such as the Malata
and Cement subsidy project for underprivileged and elderly citizens.

“In our 14 years in office, DPP has accomplished numerous development projects. We will also continue with the Malata and Cement subsidy program for elderly people,” affirmed Mutharika.

He urged the current MCP led government not to politicize the disbursement of National Economic Empowerment Fund (NEEF) loans, expressing concern that only individuals from the Central Region were benefiting from the funds.

In his remarks, DPP Publicity Secretary Shadreck Namalomba said the party will hold similar political rallies in the Northern, Central, and Eastern regions.

The party is gearing up for its elective convention in July, in preparation for the tripartite elections scheduled for
September 16, 2025. So far, only the party’s leader, Peter Mutharika, has expressed interest for re-election as the party’s President during the convention.
