The President encouraged all party functionaries to read and disseminate as widely as possible, the revised PF Manifesto 2016-2021.
“The President has explained that the platform upon which the PF is basing its message for the second term mandate will be a continuation of the pro-poor policies, it has been implementing in the last five years,” Mr. Chanda stated.
“The vision and ambition of the 2016-2021 Manifesto will focus on reducing the cost of living for the poor majority by increasing agricultural productivity, enhanced job creation and accelerated diversification of the economy.”
