Malawi opposition parties should forget about 2019 elections as a credible insititution has predicted that Mutharika will carry the day again.
the second year running, the London-headquartered Economic Intelligence Unit (EIU) has predicted that President Peter Mutharika will win the elections in 2019.
“The president, Peter Mutharika, is expected to remain in power, as his rivals are too divided to mount an effective challenge,” reads EIU’s review generated on March 30, 2017.
The EIU made the same prediction in a similar report released in March last year.
The EIU says it expects Mutharika and the DPP to remain in power throughout the forecast period, securing re-election in the 2019 election.
It says Joyce Banda’s recent announcement that she would return to the Peoples Party leadership does not threaten Mutharika.
It says regardless of which party
Joyce Banda represents “we consider Ms Banda’s electoral prospects to be relatively bleak.”
