Pollster, the Malawi Electoral Commission (MEC) has announced the Supreme Court ordered Lilongwe south east election rerun and Lilongwe Msozi north by-election will take place in June.
Acting spokesperson for MEC Richard Mveriwa confirmed this and said the two elections will cost K500 million.
“The electoral calendar for both the election rerun and the by-election will be launched this Tuesday,” he said.
He said Mec will soon present its budget to Treasury for funding.
The Supreme Court ordered the rerun after nullifying the 2014 parliamentary election results after massive rigging.
Losing candidate Ulemu Msungama of the Malawi Congress Party challenged the poll result which was won by the ruling Democratic Progressive Party’s Bentry Namasasu.
In Lilongwe Msozi north, the byelection is taking place after the death of its MP Hayton Jiya.Follow and Subscribe Nyasa TV :
