The Malawi Congress Party (MCP) has remained adamant in its dispute of the May 20 presidential elections, saying President Peter Mutharika is ruling from “a junk vote.”
MCP spokesperson Jessie Kabwila said her party still protest the presidential outcome and subsequent swearing-in of President and Vice-President, Peter Mutharika and Saulos Chilima respectively.
She said Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) did not win the elections but were given ghost votes, vowing to fight “the illegitimate leader.”
Kabwila, said her party whose leader Lazrous Chakwera came second to Mutharika, remain convinced the elections were not “credible” and that the reputation of the electoral body is tainted for giving Malawians an illegitimate President.
“We can’t have a president from a junk vote,” said Kabwila.
Kabwila said MCP did not accept defeat because it did not exist as their votes “were stolen.”
The MCP spokeswoman said Malawi has “a government that is a production of massive irregularities.”
However, DPP spokesman Nicholas Dausi said the victors would not be distracted by “bad losers.”
