President Peter Mutharika is scheduled to meet representatives of Public Affairs Committee (PAC) today to get recommendations made by delegates to the Fifth All-Inclusive Stakeholders Conference in Blantyre in February.
PAC executive director Robert Phiri said in an interview yesterday the President has given them time after cancelling an earlier appointment owing to his busy schedule on March 29 2016.
Initially, the meeting was set for the said date, but the State House postponed it after noting that it was conflicting with another presidential engagement.
“The meeting is on tomorrow [today] at 2pm. So, we will be presenting the conference recommendations and actionable resolutions,” said Phiri.
He said PAC had developed actionable resolutions on each thematic area which includes governance, agriculture, economy and health to be presented to Mutharika.
In an earlier interview, Phiri said the quasi-religious institution would present the recommendations to the President in their entirety as made by delegates during the conference.
During the stakeholders conference, delegates made several proposals but topping the list were calls from opposition political parties—Malawi Congress Party (MCP) and People’s Party (PP)—for Mutharika to resign.
However, when the PAC board met to analyse and consolidate the proposals, it did not include the resignation calls in its final 21 resolutions. n
