Aford protest to Malawi Electoral Commission on Mzuzu demarcation

Opposition Alliance for Demcracy (Aford) says it is writing a strongly worded letter to pollster, the Malawi Electoral Commission (MEC) on its failure to break the Mzuzu City constituency.

Dan Msowoya: Pens MEC

Director of Elections for Aford, Dan Msowoya said Mzuzu City constituency is too big for one constituency.

“We have constituencies in Blantyre and Lilongwe which have been broken into two or three constituencies, why have they left Mzuzu to have such one big constituency,” said Msowoya.

He said the authorities might be fearing Aford will grab the constituencies in an election since the party is popular in the north.

Mzuzu City constituency is represented by the ruling Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) MP Leonard Njikho.

Aford has one legislator, Rumphi central MP Enoch Chihana from 33 in 1994.

Msowoya also said his party is supposed to have a representation at MEC as a commissioner.

However, MEC chair Jane Ansah said demarcation of wards and constituencies await a national census in 2018.
