The Malawi Congress Party (MCP) has for the second time postponed the Dedza East primary elections that was scheduled to take place yesterday to November 25 after incumbent lawmaker Juliana Lunguzi lodged some complaints
In a letter sent to Lakeshore Regional Chairman Augustine Chidzanja , party’s the Administrative Secretary Wickford Sulamoyo said all arrangements of the elections in the area remain constant.
Chidzanja later attributed the postponement to in house issues that the party needs to address.
“There are some internal issues of which I cannot disclose but we have discussed and we have come up with a conclusion that the elections should be held next week. The venue and all other arrangements have not changed,” he said
Chdzanja said the incumbent legislator for the constituency Juliana Lunguzi lodged some complaints to the party which they will be looked into before the said date.
Lunguzi was recently quoted in the local media accusing the party leadership of sidelining her in preparatory meetings.
She also questioned the decision by the lakeshore regional office advising them to be accompanied by bodyguards during the postponed primaries a development that instilled fear in her on the expected outcome of the elections.
The party will be holding a second primaries in the area after the previous were suspended due to violence.
