Dr Lazarus Chakwera Sworn in As The 6th President Of The Republic Of Malawi

 Malawi’s Dr Lazarus Chakwera was sworn in for a five-year term on Sunday as the Country’s 6th President. He has been leader of the Malawi Congress Party since 2013 and was previously Leader of the Opposition in the National Assembly following highly controversial elections held on 21 May 2019 which were overturned by the Constitutional Court. He was President of the Malawi Assemblies of God from 1989 to 14 May 2013.

Chakwera, 65, won 58.57% of the vote in the re-run election which was as a result of the May 2019 election where President Mutharika’s controversial victory was overturned by the courts.
