Malawi President asked to resign or call referendum


Mutharika: Must seek fresh mandate

Malawi President Bingu wa Mutharika has been asked to resign as part of the recommendations issued at a meeting organised to find solutions to the country’s economic and political challenges.

At the closing of the meeting Thursday in the commercial capital, Blantyre, delegates which included tje clergy, politicians , civil society activists, called for Mutharika to “resign in 60 days” given his poor governance and economic management record.

They said the Mutharika government has lost trust of Malawians citizens in the wake of deteriorating social economic situation in the country.

The delegates offered the President an option to “call for a referendum in 90 days” to seek a fresh mandate from the people on whether his mandate should go beyond 2012 or not.

“We call for the resignation of the president or for a referendum within 90 days to seek fresh mandate from the people of Malawi,” PAC said in a statement released after the conference.

“In the event that these demands are not met, we will call on Malawians from all walks of life to go for civil disobedience,” it added.
