The Public Affairs Committee (PAC) is planning to meet President Peter Mutharika to force him to sign the electoral peace declaration.

Six other presidential candidates have already signed the declaration, pledging to conduct a peaceful campaign and avoid fuelling post-election violence.

They signed a peace statement on Saturday in Lilongwe at the national prayers on elections organised by the PAC.

Questions are still being raised on why Mutharika snubbed the national prayers on elections.

Mutharika snubbed the prayers despite confirming his attendance to PAC, last year, alongside all other presidential candidates.

Vice President Saulos Chilima was the guest of honor after Mutharika failed to turn.

PAC spokesperson Peter Mulomole told journalists in Lilongwe that they will strategise on how to meet Mutharika on the matter.

According to Chancellor College Political Science Lecturer Ernest Thindwa believes the President is apprehensive when it comes to PAC as they have not had a favourable relationship in the past.

PAC has been very critical of the Mutharika administration.

Malawins are expected to go to the polls on the 21st of this month.
