DPP faults Parliament over constituencies increase

By Staff Reporter

The opposition Democratic Progressive Party -DPP has faulted Parliament for not rejecting the recommendation to increase number of Constituencies.

Last week, parliament adopted a report that increased number of Constituencies from 193 to 229.

In a statement signed by Shadric Namalomba, Former President Peter Mutharika’s spokesperson has said DPP is against the increase of constituencies.


“The DPP reiterates its position against the resolution to increase the number of constituencies from 193 to 229. The DPP believes that the economy of Malawi which is classified by the World Bank as a least developing country with a GDP of US$12 billion and with a per capita of US$625.29 as of 2020 cannot sustain 229 constituencies, “reads the statement.
