officially get to know each one of those interested to contest for the presidency of this country. This function today which is an opener concerns the presentation of nomination papers by Abusa Helen Singh a candidate sponsored by the United Independence Party (UIP). Distinguished Ladies and Gentlemen, allow me to appreciate the bold move taken by the Candidate, Abusa Helen Singh. Out of a population of 16 million, you have come forward to present your candidature for the Office of President. We salute you, Madame. Could we all give the candidate a big round of applause! Our Honorable Candidate, elections are a competition which no one participates with an expectation of losing. However, it remains a clear fact that only one person emerges winner at the end. The race sometimes can get intense and muddy. I urge you to confine yourself to a civilized campaign. Malawians are tired of mud-slinging and foul-mouthed electioneering. For a change, they want this election to be issue-based. I would like to urge you, Madame, to champion the cause for a clean campaign.
