One thought on “MDP, PPM campaigning ahead of Monday’s by-elections”

  1. we need to say no MDP people and PPM or any other party need to win this elections.

    MDP is a threat to our democracy and they are the biggest threat to our economy and they have takes our economy to 50 years backward.

    Anni and his corruption had increase our national debt from USD 380 million 990 Million in just three years .

    So called " health scheme " was use to get huge amount of money for some of Anni close allies . Look at the people to whom bid was awarded to bring medicine to the country and advance payment of millions were given and then part payments were made without having brought any medicine.

    Some clinics were used to rob the health scheme to get money from government without having treated patients and those loop wholes had made the first health scheme to collapse and then to have the second scheme which is also on the verge of collapse.
