Liwonde won after flooring the Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) and the United Democratic Front (UDF) candidates in the recent by-elections.

Speaking during the swearing in ceremony which took place on Monday, MCP spokesperson Dr Jessie Kabwila, who led the delegation of the party, to welcome the new councillor, commended the voters for the confidence they had in the party.

“It’s a yard stick that in transparent elections MCP wins and this indicates that the party will also win the Lilongwe City South East poll rerun,” she said

Kabwira said it is not a joke for MCP to win in Ntcheu which is heavily dominated with the ruling DPP.

MCP insists it legitimately won the Maya elections but that DPP stole their victory.

“We trust Malawians elected us,” she maintained.

“It will still be on record that May 20 2014 elections were fraudulent,” said Kabwila.

Meanwhile, Dowa East Member of Parliament (MP) Richard Banda said there is need for Parliament to pass laws aimed at bringing sanity in the way elections are conducted in the country.

Malawi uses the first-past-the-post system where the candidate with the largest share of votes is declared winner of the presidential race.

He also took a swipe at the country’s Judiciary, noting it did not conduct itself in the right manner regarding the May 20 Tripartite Elections.

“The Judiciary should realise that issues of national interest like elections need to be handled with seriousness and maturity. Our learned friends should not regulate the wrong; otherwise, we are doomed for a hard fall,” Banda said.

The outcome of the presidential results was mired in controversy amid allegations of rigging and confusion over how the MEC should have proceeded in the wake of conflicting court rulings on vote counting.

The results of the vote were announced on 30 May, minutes after the High Court refused a last-ditch attempt to block their release and allow time for a recount.
