People's Party is a political party in the Republic of Malawi that was founded in 2011 by Joyce Banda, from May 2009 to April 2012 Vice-President of Malawi, and President since 7 April 2012.
Joyce Banda created the People's Party after being expelled from the ruling Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) when she refused to endorse President Bingu wa Mutharika's younger brother Peter Mutharika as the successor to the presidency for the 2014 general election.
During 2011, the court refused to register the organisation as an official political party because its name sounded too similar to others in the country. Eventually the high court dismissed this and ordered that the party be registered within fourteen days.
