A powerful Anglican church bishop has hailed the Malawi Electoral Commission (MEC) for treating presidential candidates equally during the presentation of nomination papers last week in Blantyre.

Bishop Samuel Magangani said this during a Church service on Sunday.

“This gives us confidence that the election will be free, fair and credible,” he said.

The bishop said who were disqualified should blame themselves, accusing them of going to MEC unprepared.

“The onus is now on Malawians to scrutinize each and every candidate critically before voting so that we have a desirable leader,” he said.

Magangani urged the politicians to embrace issue based campaign for the good of voters instead of hurling insults at each other.

MEC disqualified Ras Chikomeni David Chirwa and Smart Swira, among others for calling to pay K2 million nomination fees and dailies to get required signatures for their enforcement as presidential candidates.
