Democratic Progressive Party (Malawi)

Democratic Progressive Party (Malawi)

The Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) is the ruling political party in Malawi. The party was formed in February 2005 by Malawian President Bingu wa Mutharika after a dispute with the United Democratic Front.

There were allegations that members of the former governing UDF did not adequately tackle corruption. It is unclear if the party will be ideological or personalist in style. Since the UDF was a member of the Liberal International, the DPP might take a liberal position.[citation needed]

In October 2008, the DPP's national governing council unanimously chose Mutharika as the party's candidate for the May 2009 presidential election.[1]
