Peace Talks Critical-New Pac Chair
New chairperson for the Public Affairs Committee, Monsignor Patrick Thawale, has demanded of political leaders to put citizen interest ahead of their own in Malawi.
Monsignor Thawale said in an exclusive interview with Zodiak that his committee looks forward to bringing political leaders together in a quest for meaningful peace.
He hopes to achieve that in the days ahead of a court verdict on the presidential election case.
Meanwhile, Chancellor College political scientist, Ernest Thindwa, says the new leadership at PAC has tough task before it given the present political atmosphere.
But Monsignor Thawale says his administration will strive to promote peace and unity by bringing politicians of different persuasions together.
The odd PAC administration had taken the path of mediation that brought together all political fronts, an initiative that was aimed at bringing peace in the country.
The parties involved in the talks, the MCP, UTM and HRDC have indicated they are not interested in the mediation talks until after the court verdict.
