Johannesburg, South Africa (ADV) – The Malawian Civil Society Education Coalition (CSEC) recently revealed its plans to engage political parties ahead of tripartite elections scheduled for May to ensure the next government fulfills promises on education, Maravi Post reported.

CSEC Executive Director, Benedicto Kondowe, underlined that politicians have been promising to improve education standards and later abandon their promises when voted into offices.

“The organisation want to make sure that politicians buy into the thinking of Malawians by ensuring that they implement what they put in their manifestos,” Kondowe, adding that his organisation will ensure that there is inclusive education for all.

Kondowe also mentioned that they are planning to meet five leading political parties, United Democratic Front (UDF), United Transformation Movement (UTM), ruling Democratic Progressive Party (DPP), Malawi Congress Party (MCP) and People’s Party (PP) this month to push them to sign a declaration and ensure that they fulfill their promises once elected.

“We want to make sure that the momentum they are setting are always considered, we need to have coherent positions, we are framing the aspirations of Malawians,” he said.
