Background on Malawi[lemba | kulemba source]

The following information comes from the CIA world fact book.[2]

Capital: Lilongwe

Population: 13,603,181 (2007 est.)

GDP per capita: $800 (2007 est.)

Type of Government: Multiparty democracy

History of current leader: Malawi, established in 1891, gained its independence from Britain in 1964. It held its first multi party election in 1994, after three decades of rule under President Hastings Kamuzu. President Bingu wa Mutharika, who was elected in May 2004, currently holds the position. He formed his own party called the Democratic Progressive Party (DPP).

Malawi has seen some economic improvement, but because of a political deadlock in the legislature, Mutharika has been unable to pass significant legislation. This has stalled the fight against corruption.

Legal System: based on English common law, judicial review of legislative acts in the Supreme Court of appeal.
