FA Malawi hires pollster MEC to oversee presidential elections

Football Association of Malawi (FAM) has hired pollster, Malawi Electoral Commission (MEC) to ensure free, fair and credible presidential elections on December 12 in Salima.

Nyamilandu: FAM 'open terms'  president

Nyamilandu: FAM ‘open terms’ president

FAM chief executive officer Suzgo Nyirenda assured football lovers that the election, between incumbent Walter Nyamilandu and Sulom backed and banker Wilkins Mijiga will be credible.

“The election will be through a secret ballot and we will need the expertise of MEC. MEC officials will man the polling booths,” said Nyirenda.

In addition, Nyirenda said, FAM has invited international monitors to ensure transparency and accountability in the closely contested presidential elections.

“We will have two people from SAFA to be led by its legal manager. They have confirmed coming. We will also have representatives from Cosafa;” said Nyirenda.

He said in addition, FAM has invited FA presidents from neighbouring countries.

Nyirenda said this shows how committed FAM is to ensure free, fair and credible election.

Nyamilandu has already served three terms and his decision to run for the fourth term has divided the football body just as it has divided football fanatics.

Football has more following in Malawi than any other sport.

  10. Wonder says:

    For the benefit of Nyasatimes. A pollster is someone who conducts surveys of public opinion on issues. MEC is therefore not a pollster. Tamakulani!

    The comments that stupid people are making are nonsense. For how long would idiots cry that MEC rigged elections ? How sleepy are your presidents and parties that claim that the elections were rigged? Bravo FAM for engaging MEC. We have trust in MEC. Voted most transparent body in two consecutive years! What more do you need ?
    Would these stupid people say ” FAM don’t use ESCOM power because of blackouts? Or don’t use water from Lilongwe water board coz of insufficient supply? Or don’t use Malawi roads coz of the pot holes ?”
    These idiots make me feel sick of being a Malawian . There is no patriotism . All we know is cry, castigate, abuse, rubbish other peoples work etc!
    The more reason we shall never develop

  25. SONG says:

    Bola mbendera asakalireso kumeneko chonde Mbendera wakuba iwe.

  26. Ojambula says:

    MEC officials cannot be trusted to man these elections. If they messed up the 2014 tripartite elections, what about the FAM elections? They can handle those elections and say they were free, fair and credible. Unless Walter Nyamilandu declares that he’s no longer contesting

  27. SIKONO M'KAMWA says:

    If Walter wins the rigging was done and if Mijiga wins the results will not be accepted. There is a lot of witch hunting going on right now. Come election day and let the right candidate win for the sake of sport and the organization. We need to move on and close this issue.

  28. Peter27 says:

    Seriuosly? Hiring MEC for a free and fair election? Kikikiki. Very funny.
    Ask the likes of JB and Chakwera if you want to know about MEC.
    Hiring MEC is a guarantee of complete failed elections!

  29. Prince Edward rsa says:

    Who accredited MEC to man the election we know mec is a shit of stuff,we dont trust them anymore they are easily to be corrupted money hungry pipo
