During the meeting that members of Parliament of Malawi Congress Party had on Tuesday, January 16, 2018, the following resolutions were made

1. We are condemning in the strongest terms the letter written by the following people

a. First Deputy president, Richard Msowoya

b. Second Deputy President, Mr. McDonald Lombola

c. The Secretary General, Mr. Gustav Kaliwo

d. The First Secretary General, Mr. James Chatonda Kaunda

e. The Director of International Relations, Mr. Tony Kandiero

Who made serious allegations that the president, Rt. Hon. Dr. Lazarus Chakwera, is breaking the constitution. We feel that, if they had issues, themselves being in the same office with the President, should have taken the initiative to solve the said problem. The Malawi Congress Party constitution does not have a politburo in its hear achy. The President never said anything about politburo in his press statement. The 5 people are the one breaking the constitution by creating a structure called Politburo.

At no point did Dr. Lazarus Chakwera mention anything about dissolving the incumbent NEC. That power only rests in NEC meeting. The consultative meeting before December 1, 2017, has no legal mandate in our party structure unless ratified by NEC. And further to that, the president in his media interview, categorically made it clear that it was in the powers of Management and NEC to look into the communiqué of the consultative meeting.

2. MCP Members of Parliament have recommended that the Secretary General, Mr. Gustav Kaliwo should be suspended forthwith for the following reasons

a. He has absented himself with no reasons for more than three consecutive NEC meetings contrary to the MCP constitution

b. He has shown gross incompetence by failing to give policy direction to the party

c. He has absented himself from major party functions for two years, including the whole period of the 6 bi elections held in October 2017 without giving any reason

d. He has absented himself from a management meeting which he himself called without communicating to any member about the postponement of the said meeting

e. He has gone against our core principles of the four corner stones by convening parallel meetings and thereafter putting the same resolutions on party stationery, with members who have no mandate in the party

3. We recommend to the National Executive Committee to hold elective national conference, also known as National Convention by March 26, 2018, which is within the 60 day period, as per the constitution.

4. We endorse 100% the open door policy which Dr. Lazarus Chakwera has been advocating, which has seen people from all regions of the country joining the party, and we further encourage them to exercise their democratic right to contest for any position at the convention.

Thank you very much
