The Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) presidential candidate has finally canceled his US greencard. The process of canceling the card has just ended some minutes ago.
The issue of green card has sparked debate barely four days before presenting his nomination papers at the Malawi Electoral Commission. Earlier on the Malawi Electoral Commission (MEC) wrote the Attorney General seeking for guidance over the matter.
MEC Chairperson Max Mbendera and Attorney General are on record that they’re seeking legal option on the matter.
On his return from USA, Peter Mutharika described the issue as nonsense and that it was part of Joyce Banda’s government tactics to stop him from contesting in the May 2014 Tripartite Elections, but he vowed to fight any attempt legally.
