PP/DPP alliance defeats 50+1

151

As reports that ruling Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) intends to merge with People’s Party (PP) are rife, lawmakers of the former ruling party joined DPP Members of Parliament (MPs) in shooting down the electoral reforms bills in Parliament.

The MPs blocked the Presidential, Parliamentary and Local Government Amendments Bill.

The bill proposes the election of the president, councillors and MPs using the 50+1 percent system.

Parliament

PP MPs join 50+1 bill denial.

It was rejected when a motion was put to the House to allow Minister of Justice and Constitutional Affairs Samuel Tembenu read it for the second time.

Legislators on the government side supported by some PP MPs voted against second reading while most opposition MPs voted yes to the motion. At the end the motion was defeated by 97 to 62 votes.

A viral post indicating voting results show that almost all PP lawmakers rejected the bill. Only three MPs, vocal Kamlepo Kalua, Ralph Jooma and Roy Kachale were not present in the August House.

This is after news has been making rounds that the DPP is seeking the hand of PP ahead of the 2019 elections.

At the moment, unverified claims indicate that PP MPs were paid up to MK250,000 for making this stand.
The DPP is however yet to respond to these rumours.

The DPP is being accused of working tirelessly to suppress the bills under the electoral reforms bills as proposed by a special law commission.

  1. This is very good as people now are able to know the true colours of these three parties. Onse akhala m’boma ndipo akhala akunena za zoipa za wina at the end akupanga mgwirizano. Malawians are being taken for granted but they will speak out one day.

  2. Watch out guyz when commenting we are after seeing a beautiful future for malawi. Let me give you a picture here bingu was worse than pp, amayi anangolakwitsa ndi cashgate koma things would have changed for better. Now this time let’s not smile at dpp akupwetekani seriously

  3. this bill is for the benefit of Malawians but there is misunderstanding cz other parties are thinking that the amendment of 50+1 bill is their to undertake authorities, take note of this, if the bill pass, it will exist to the next generation but because of greedy to goverment seats thats why other authorities disagree to the amendment…Malawi need a change in all sphere !!!

  4. They are two sides of this issue:
    1.PAC wants to try to usher their brethren Rev into gvt as President through dubious ways.
    2.The forcing of Govt and Parliament to table and pass the bill brings more questions than ans.
    -hence it looks like targetting an individual since elections are around the corner.
    Tichenjere aMalawi.

  5. Malawi will never improve coz of stupidt politics we have zowona kumatnyadila alliance ya DPP n PP this r the same pipo sude to hate each other ndekuti amayi mlandu sayimbidwatu salowanso boma malawi sazatheka

  6. Ine dala yanga ndi ya kwa goliyati koma ndinabadwila ndi kukulira ku nkhatabay dat y sindine buli coz munthu ozindikila sangadane ndi 50+1 system

  7. It give you how Malawian politicians their brains work. They live for now not for the country future. How wise you see them, how many books they engulfed but they are still in premitive age. Now don’t trust them for the Future you are own your own.

  8. Good alliance.Continue for the good of all Malawians.
    Mr Levi Kalitsilo had a post on this so called 50+1.Many commented on that nagatively and positively as well.I remember someone labelling me as a retrogressive thinker,luckly the presenter came to my rescue and was silenced immediately.My question is now,’ who Im I ?Those who know me,can answer this item in no time at all.But others can as well get it right.
    Becarefull,this government is full of intelligent people and can win with land slide victory.They go according to plans.With PP coming to their allience will mean reapting that land slide victory because these were the same members that made it.People will vote for these mps because they have shown their maturity indeed.
    PAC is our religious body that speak for us always and everyone and all is sure that it will accept the will of the people through their mps.We respect and we shall continue to respect our PAC.

  9. Apa sizinavute zokhumba zao a PAC zakanika nanga amatisokosera ife mkumti atumidwa ndi amalawi amalawi ake akuti,auzeni apiteko ku nyumba yamalamulo kuti iwowo akavomereze malamulo.

  10. Its malawian themself promoting bad leadership full of corruption hw can people be very happy with the alliance which is against good governance, and those MP supporting chaos can we expect deveropment

    • iwe ndiye ukukamba zomveka, boma loikila kumbuyo zoipa ili, mwachitsanzo limaikila kumbuyo Chaponda koma mulungu sanalole, alliance imene anaigula pofuna kumupulumutsa Joice Banda idzatha one day kkkkkk

  11. That is wisdom and intelligence. Keep it up! Simple majority is good for Malawi. It is impoverished state, that borrows money and asks for donations for any peace of work in the village. Look at our communities. They always go to vote, vote for their candidate, have you seen them going to court to complain? They continue with their local food, kholowa, limanda, kazota, chigwada and life continues. It is politician who complains against another.

  12. Ndimakumbukabe Nyimbo ya JOSEPHY NKASA> akayanyana. Kuyamba mwachikondi mapeto kulumana,tionana pa kampeni makosana atatu inu DPP,UDF,PP if God says Yes nobody can say No,kulira kwa wanthu mkwakukulu zedi. Billy Kaunda anati ” Inu dzidyanii mawa ndzatifunaa ,poti mwatsalaaa ndi nzaka nzochepaaa-mwayiwalira kuti nzonsiyilana- nzosiyilanaaaaa ah aaaah,tidzaonaaaaa eeeeeeeeh”

  13. This is a proof that opposition and pac they are bunch of losers when it comes to policy making decisions in Malawi’s democracy

  14. Apa Ma Mps Okonda Dziko Ndiamene Akana Bill!Koma Amene Ndiodzikonda Amatama Ndiamene Anavotera Bill Imeneyi,dziko Lathu Tilibe Migodi Ndi Zinthu Zina Zopezera Ndalama Nthawi Ya Chisankho Timachita Kupemphetsa Ndiye 50+1 Ya Pac Ndi Chakwera Ingathandize Ma Mps @ Mcp Muzikonda Dziko Lanu Ngati Ma Mp Udf,pp Mr Chakwera Bill Imeneyi Itha Kudzaliza Inu Nomwe 2019.

  15. Boma sicompany kuti lero ndi lero kuliopsesa mkusintha.Mcp ngati mwaiwala ndiye kuti by election inja ndiyomwe yakusekani mmapilikano ndiye muziona.Palibetu chomwe inu a mcp mutayambisa mkutheka,chifukwa ngati simuyamba plan B 2019 muzalira kulira momvesa chisoni,awa a Dpp,udf komanso pp ndiamodzi ndiye ngati muzilimbana ndizinthu zoti simungazithe muziona.

    • The current leadership of MCP carries dna of old mcp, check characters of its leaders :late chakuamba boycott parliament sessions Chakwela too,Tembo with section 65 while Chakwela with 50+1 bill, this party will never change at all

  16. Boma linakamba kuti libweletsa that bill ku parliament akapanga finalise zinthu zina koma the Opposition ndi PAC anakakamiza boma doing chomwe samafuna doing at that moment, that’s why anaipititsa mokakamizidwa and with their Majority rejected it. and Boma lapanga dala to show us out here that Boma ndi Boma .

  17. When Party leaders have court cases to answer their Parties will always sacrifice the greater good for the sake of protecting the leaders. We have seen it in UDF where the party has not been free to express its voice on topical issues…and now its the PP…..going the same route as the UDF.

  18. KENAKO TIKUMVA KUTI MCP IKULOWA KU BOMA LOLAMULA DZIKO LAMALAWI NDI LALING’ONO TIKAONETSA MIKWIYO NALO LITIKWIILA NDITHU. TIKADIKILA ZOTI TIDZAPANGA CHITUKUKO CHIKADZALOWA CHIPANI CHATHU NDIYE MPAKA YESU ADZATSIKA MUKUDIKILABE.

  19. Mind u! These are the pacs bills.Tell pac togo to parliament and vote now. Amatitu anatumidwa ndi amalawi, the owner of the house have spoken.

    • Chisale, ithink you have lost direction.Pac drafted these 6 bills including 50+1 even before peter takeover the office of the presdent.What malawians are suprising is; in time of jb,pac were there with those bills but they didn't say anything.Now,peter came,they have started matukutuku which means akungodana ndi banja la muthalika basi.Ali ndi zipan zawo zomwe amakwera kuma sidzimakondedwa ndi amalawi.So they are trying to use the name of malawian as their wepeon kufuna kulanda boma mwaupandu.Nditsiku liti lomwe amulomole ndi gulu lawo anapita kumidzi nkumakatumidwa ndi anthu osauka kuti akufuna 50+1? Fufuzan ndipo mupeza kut ndikagulu kawo komweko kanapanga zimenezi.Ndipo zikatha zimenezi,dziwani kut adzakakamiza aphungu kut adzakambirane za sunday law.Mufune musafune izi zikuenera kudzachita maka lamuloli likamalizidwa kulisindikiza ku rome.

  20. A PAC anaumiriza bulu kupita Ku tsinje kuti akamwe madzi pamene buluyo samafuna, lero buluyo wapita Ku mtsinjeko koma wakanitsitsiratu kumwa madziwo kkkk a PAC phuma,mutu zweee! boma kukana ma bill obweretsa okha,otsutsa kukamwa yasaaaaah, PAC is to brame for this,shame

  21. Mukachotsa “D” mupeza PP. Mukaonjezera “D” mupeza DPP.
    Morale of this is DPP and PP ndi ana a UDF. That is why this country if failing to move forward, UDF akuyimba belo ali pa kariyala.
