The Democratic Progress Party (DPP) has vowed to reclaim its glory in the Northern Region and has since elected new regional governors to handle the task.
The party last Sunday held elections for regional governor [North] and his three deputies in preparation for the forthcoming May 2014 tripartite elections.
Newly elected regional governor Kenneth Sanga, who replaced Nick Masebo, said the new office-bearers are determined to see the party claiming all the 33 parliamentary seats in the region during the 2014 polls.
He said they will ensure party president Professor Peter Mutharika wins the presidential race.
Sanga also said the party was not moved by defections to ruling
People’s Party, claiming the defectors were MPs without followers.
“People have now realised that DPP has sound policies. People have noted that DPP was performing in areas of foodsecurity, infrastructure, the economy and so on,” said Sanga.
He said the party will soon be holding primary elections to identify potential candidates for the elections.
“The North is still home of DPP and we are very ready for the tripartite elections. The outcome of the elections will prove the people wrong,” he said.
