MZUZU--Malawi's ruling People's Party (PP) will not allow all independents that have contested against the party to run for primaries in 2014, the year Malawi is expected to hold general elections.
PP Treasurer General Harry Mkandawire made the remarks at at Kapando Primary School in Mzimba Central Constituency which will hold a bye-election October 9.
"The challenge is that they have broken the party discipline by disputing the outcome of primaries and running against it. This means we cannot allow them in 2014," said Mkandawire.
Vice President Khumbo Kachali said honest Malawians were able to appreciate the leadership of Pres Joyce Banda despite the economic challenges.
"Tobacco prices were better due to bold policies of the president. The president has expressed bold statements to change life for the better for everyone and change has started than the previous regime," said Kachali.
He said Pres Banda has increased number of beneficiaries for the fertiliser subsidy to ensure that more Malawians benefit from the programme.
Inkosi Mtwalo said the current Government should be assured of winning the bye-elections as farmers and the poor people were accessing the direct social cash transfer.
