Malawi 2007

Yearbook 2007

Malawi. As in recent years, 2007 was marked by a power struggle between President Bingu wa Mutharika and the opposition. According to CountryAAH, Lilongwe is the capital city of Malawi. The conflict stems from the fact that the president formed his own party shortly after he was elected as a candidate for the former United Democratic Front (UDF) government party and brought dozens of MPs to his Democratic Progressive Party (DPP).

In June, the Supreme Court gave the President of Parliament the power to exclude members who changed parties during the term of office. When 41 members were threatened with being deprived of their seats, a lower court temporarily suspended the process. While the tug of war for parliamentary seats was ongoing, the opposition refused to consider the government’s budget proposals. After pressure from both donors and civil society, the budget could be adopted in September, four months late. The opposition agreed to the budget debate after pledging to speed up the judicial process of the disputed parliamentary mandates. When the budget was ready and new aid money could be released, the President instead declared the Parliament session closed prematurely and closed the Assembly.

During ongoing political conflict, Malawi recovered one of its best harvests in a very long time. Maize harvest was 22 percent higher than in 2006 and 73 percent above the average of the last five years. As late as 2005, Malawi suffered from famine. Now the country could jointly donate 10,000 tonnes of maize to drought-hit Lesotho and Swaziland.
