BLANTYRE--Malawian opposition has thrown its ego and pride away to gang up for a meeting with Pres Bingu wa Mutharika that seeks to help sort out the economic meltdown.
The MCP, UDF, PP, PPM, Petra, Mafunde, MDP, New Republican Party and CODE by Ralph Kasambara, met in Blantyre on Monday under the chairmanship of PPM President Mark Katsonga, the Daily Times reported.
Katsonga said they agreed to book an appointment with the President to discuss the "current state of affairs and offer solutions."
He said they also agreed to book an appointment with donors to make a presentation and "seek practical ways of resolving these issues."
The group also wants to hold a joint rally. It wasn't clear where the rally would be held and when.
The Mutharika administration has been under intense pressure locally and internationally over a number of concerns including donor freeze of aid, shortages of forex and fuel, violation of the rule of law and a clampdown on critics.
