Mutharika Ready To Talk With Opposition But There Are Conditions

President Peter Mutharika says he could only meet opposition leaders for talks to end the current political impasse if an agenda was set for this meeting. Since the elections, in which Jane Ansah of Malawi's Electoral Commission, declared Democratic Progressive Party's President Peter Mutharika the winner, the country has experienced regular protests led by civil society groups under the banner of Human Rights Defenders Coalition and backed by opposition parties.
