Alliances confident as ballot papers arrive for Malawi presidential re-vote

The grand opposition Tonse Alliance and the ruling DPP-UDF alliance contesting in the June 23 Court-sanctioned fresh presidential  election  say their confidence in Malawi Electoral Commission (MEC) has been boosted following the transparent arrival of the batch of ballot papers on Friday .

Ballot papers have arrived at Kamuzu International Airport in Lilongwe.

The papers arrived through Kamuzu International Airport (KIA) in Lilongwe amid heavy security by Malawi Defence Force (MDF) soldiers who were deployed in strategic corners within Air Cargo building precincts.

An Emirates cargo aeroplane landed at KIA at 11.45am and the ejecting of palates of ballot papers immediately started under the watch of political party representatives and observers.

Malawi Congress Party (MCP), UTM Party and Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) officials said in separate interviews that MEC displayed a high level of commitment to ensure that the elections next Tuesday are held in a fair, credible and transparent manner.

MCP Secretary General Elsenwhower Mkaka expressed confidence that the elections will be conducted fairly following the transparent manner in which the final stages of elections are being run.

DPP director of elections Ben Phiri also hailed MEC for ensuring that all processes are done in a transparent manner.

There are three  presidential candidates in the fresh elections.

The presidential candidates include Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) president Peter Mutharika and his running mate Atupele Muluzi ; Malawi Congress Party (MCP) president Lazarus Chakwera and his running mate Saulos Chilima as well as Mbakuwaku Movement for Development (MMD) president Peter Kuwani and his running mate Archibald Kalawang’oma.

99% of the voters in the southern and eastern regions are for UDF/DPP (3m). They also have pockets of voters about 600,000 in the central region and over 300,000 in the north. With roughly 3.8m votes, they will sail through.

The 2025 election, MEC should ensure that all materials are printed in Malawi. We need to start believing in ourselves. If we can print books, we can print ballots too.

I implore the contestants to find a way of enticing registered voters who for whatever reason failed to turn-up for voting in the last election to come out this time to vote in the FPE. Especially the Chakwera-Chilima team (which I know wants to win for the country and its people), needs to speak to the almost 1 million central region voters who failed to turn-up for voting last time (in the southern region it was a smaller number but most of those are potential voters for the Mbava (DPP-UDF) alliance which wants to win to serve personal interests)!!!

Why can’t Malawi print its own ballot papers instead of having them printed abroad and transported in? So much more expensive and time consuming.

Simple. We don’t trust ourselves, and rightly so. Give such a contract to a Malawian company and soon they will be visited by contesting individuals and parties carrying suitcases full of various currencies. No, lets leave it as it is.
