Public Affairs committee PAC has asked organizations championing 50:50 campaign to support women who fail primary elections in order to contest as independents.

Speaking during a multiparty liaison committee PAC Chair in Dowa father Elias Chixule said it is proper to assist such women as they are capable of winning 2019 tripartite elections.

Dowa NICE Trust Civic Education Officer Vincent Mbenjere called for continuous sensitization of 50:50 campaign after elections.

In his remarks, NGO Gender Coordination Network programs officer Antony Mkupira said they only sponsor women candidates on party ticket.

“It is our wish to have continuous sensitization of the process but funding is hampering their plans,” Mkupira said
