Ex-President Peter Mutharika has hinted he may stand for presidency again in the coming elections saying he has been getting calls from people encouraging him to do so.

The Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) leader made the remarks in an interview with Voice of America.

The former Malawi leader said there are people who feel he should become president again to complete projects which he said the current president Lazarus Chakwera has failed to complete.

He added that on the day he was being interviewed, he had a meeting with chiefs and religious leaders.

Mutharika was declared winner of the 2019 presidential elections but his opponents Lazarus Chakwera and Saulos Chilima went to court.

The results were nullified by the Constitutional Court in 2020 which resulted in the holding of the 2020 fresh presidential elections in which Chakwera and Chilima were elected president and vice president respectively.

Mutharika in the interview reiterated his claims that the current government colluded with the Judiciary to remove him from government after one year of his second term.
