Barely a fortnight after winning a landslide presidential and parliamentary elections, Malawi's ruling party, Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) has announced that it will reveal names and identities of the business men and women who helped the party with campaign materials that included bicycles and t-shirts.
Speaking to the newly elected DPP central region parliamentarians the party's leader and Malawi 3rd President, Bingu wa Mutharika told the legislatures that the party is to publish names of the people who sponsored it during the election May 19th elections. Mutharika got a convincing majority of 65% and his party has secured 114 parliamentary seats of the possible 193.
If President Mutharika acts by his word, DPP will be the first ruling party to do so since the dawn of democracy in 1994.
Meanwhile, Malawi parliament is holding a two day swearing in ceremony of the parliamentarians - from the 1st to the 2nd of June. It remains unclear if a presidential runner-up and the leader of opposition elect John Tembo will be attending the ceremony as he has filed a law suit in protesting against the results.
