The Malawi Congress Party and the UTM have finally put pen to paper to an understanding on an electoral alliance leading to fresh presidential election as ordered by the constitutional court.

After weeks of candid political discussions between two political ideologies, leaders of the Malawi Congress Party and the UTM parties finally put pen to paper an understanding binding them to an electoral alliance ahead of fresh presidential election as ordered by the constitutional court.

Speaker of Parliament, Catherine Gotani Hara, has called for a media briefing Thursday apparently to outline how the house is going to respond to Monday orders by the Constitutional Court which was hearing the presidential election dispute.

The Malawi Congress Party-MCP-has called for what it is calling a victory rally at its’ headquarters at City Centre in the capital, Lilongwe.
