Malawi Congress Party and Lazarus Chakwera will be defeated in the 2025 elections, Economist Intelligence Unit (EIU) has predicted.
In a latest analysis covering the period 2023 to 2027 for Malawi, EIU cites mismanagement of economy, worsening looting and divisions in the so-called Tonse Alliance among the factors for Chakwera’s defeat.
Chakwera has lost policy and economic direction, and he has publicly admitted that he is not in control of the country. Currently, Malawi is under silent sanctions with donor support withdrawal because of unparalleled economic mismanagement.
In a report released today, Wednesday, the London-based think-tank says these negative trends will continue under Chakwera administration till September 2025 when Malawi goes to the polls.
“At the next polls, Mr Chakwera and the MCP face probable defeat,” concludes EIU.
The EIU has always made correct predictions elections all over Africa, including Malawi.
