MCP Fails To Agree On Candidate, Meeting Continues Friday

The main opposition, Malawi Congress Party or MCP National Executive Committee (NEC) meeting is expected on Friday to continue deliberations over the preparations for the forth coming convention.
Sources who were in the 10 hour long meeting on Thursday confirmed to this blogger that the gathering in the administrative capital, Lilongwe, adjourned after failing to reach an agreement.
Apart from discussing preparations for the convention, featured highly in the deliberations was the scrutinizing the names of candidates vying for MCP’s top position of president.
According to information gathered by this blogger, all the presidential candidates coming from the central region were advised by MCP president John Tembo that they should agree to field one person to contest for the presidency. However, after long hours of discussions, the MCP gurus failed to agree resulting in the adjournment.
According to insiders, this was one of the main reasons that forced the MCP to consider vetting the names of candidates to compete for the top job.
The MCP convention is expected to take place from the 9th to the 11th of August, 2013 at the Natural Resources College in Lilongwe.
