The NGO–Gender Coordination Network (NGO–GCN) joins Malawians of goodwill in extending its warm congratulations to His Excellency the State President Dr Lazarus McCarthy Chakwera on being elected the 6th President and Right Honourable Dr Saulos Klaus Chilima on being elected Vice President of the Republic of Malawi following the Fresh Presidential Election (FPE) held on 23rd June, 2020.
NGO-GCN has high legitimate hopes and expectations that your administration shall deliver on its mandate by enforcing the legal and regulatory frameworks that are aimed at achieving gender equality and equity in all public sectors including appointments/recruitments. In addition, we expect your administration to address all reported human rights violations including the rape, defilement and torture against women and girls in and around Msundwe, M’bwatalika and Mpingu Trading Centres.
NGO-GCN further looks forward to a cordial working relationship with your administration and wishes Your Excellency all the best as you set on executing your constitutional mandate in the coming five (5) years.
The NGO–GCN, which currently has a membership of 54 NGOs, promotes gender equality and equity and women empowerment. The Network works through five thematic areas on each of which Permanent Committees were established and these are: Women in Politics and Decision Making, Child Rights, Gender Based Violence, Gender Related Laws and Agriculture and Economic Empowerment.
