    Speaker of the National Assembly Catherine Gotani Hara has endorsed President Lazarus McCarthy Chakwera as the Malawi Congress Party (MCP) torch bearer for the 2025 elections.

    Gotani Hara, who is also MCP Deputy Secretary General, has  become a latest senior politician in the country to declare that President Lazarus Chakwera is a perfect fit to lead the MCP again in 2025.

    The endorsement comes barely days after an opposition Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) member of parliament in LiLongwe said at a political rally that President Chakwera will win the 2025 presidential election as the opposition DPP is busy infighting both inside and outside courts due to relentless power struggle.

    Speaking during a fundraising dinner and dance for the MCP on Friday in LiLongwe, Gotani Hara highlighted the achievements of Chakwera’s two years in presidential office and how he is turning around the economy battered hugely by covid-19 pandemic, the Ukraine-Russian war and climate change, among others.

    MCP vice president Harry Mkandawire also endorsed Chakwera as the party’s torchbearer during the 2025 presidential election.

    There are some section within the DPP which is now pushing for the 80 year old party leader Peter Mutharika to stand for the 2025 presidential election.

    It is expected that President Chakwera’s main challenger will be State Vice President Saulos Chilima.

    During the Friday function, Chakwera did not comment on the matter.

    Instead, he said the Malawi Congress Party  needs  to lead by example as the country aspires to actualise the country’s development blueprint, Malawi  2063.

    He said that self reliance is the only way to make MCP remain a national party.

    The event was organised to raise money for  operations of the party.
