Citizens have asked government to relocate Malawi Electoral Commission to Lilongwe in order to easily administer, manage and run electoral activities.
Citizen Alliance in partnership with Zodiak radio on Tuesday through Bwalo la Mzika gave the citizenry a platform to comment on social, political and economic woes which Malawi as a country is going through.
During the meeting, Citizen Alliance also gave a report on what people of Balaka said when the Alliance gave another opportunity for them to discuss freely of the same issues and give solutions to problems.
During the debate, Aaron Kafakamoyo said he is surprised that MEC is still headquartered in Blantyre and yet all other organisations have shifted to Lilongwe.
“This is very surprising indeed, we have always been saying of changing the way of doing businesses by cutting costs why can we not shift MEC from Blantyre to Lilongwe. This will make more economic sense because it doesn’t make any sense for a drivers to cruise from Blantyre to Karonga to supply electoral materials,” he said
Kafakamoyo said people from the south will have no administrative challenges in terms of accessing the electoral materials than people from the north and those coming from the central region.
Citizen Alliance Executive Secretary, Wilson Asibu there is need for the leadership to be accountable to its people on various governance issues.
Bwalo La Nzika is a State of Union funded project and Malawi Economic Justice Network (MEJN) aimed at empowering local citizens to debate on issues affecting their nation and proposing solutions to Government.
SOTU collaborates with Government of Malawi to keep adept track of how the Government is complying with African Union Charters, Treaties, and Protocols in respect of ratification, domestication and implementation of the same.
