Ansah in charge, Malawi to host Sadc elections seminar

Malawi is to host annual general conference for the Electoral Commissions for Sadc amidst a highly charged political atmosphere in the country.

Ansah: To chair the meeting

According to a media statement from the Malawi Electoral Commission (MEC) signed by its embattled chairperson Jane Ansah, the conference takes place from September 22 to 27, 2019.

This will be the first time for Ansah to appear in public since the opposition Malawi Congress Party (MCP) and UTM dragged MEC to court over the highly disputed May 21 presidential elections.

She will also appear in public for the first time since the onset of the Human Rights Defenders Coalition (HRDC) sanctioned anti-Jane Ansah protests.

“Alongside the conference, the ECF Sadc will also host a one-day international seminar on enhancing the credibility of elections through observation,” says Ansah in the statement.

The ECF Sadc is a network of electoral management bodies from 16 countries and Malawi currently holds the presidency for the forum, according to Ansah.

Sadc and au are failed organization in the history, let those who were raised by dirty money keep on applauding their parents and friends. Where is Bingu? He did his best to fool people in his second term later he was sorted and Mbendera two was sorted so wait.

This simply shows how credible our elections were…this failed, funded demonstrations shows that this people are being used by the opposition while SADC and the courts are really following the proceedings well and they new that there is no case…next is opposition being declared bankruptcy because of lawsuits charges..I left my case.

While Ansah and MEC are independent to do what she and or it wills, her behaviour and that of the MEC justifies the need for Malawi as a nation to review the electoral law and make some provision for codes of conduct i.e. lay out the behaviour expected of the various participants after an election – e.g. election officials and workers; political parties and candidates; other government officials; and sometimes also the media.

Jane Ansah is innocent until proven guilty by the courts. As of now she is constitutionally mandated to perform her duties as Cair of MEC

SADC? Remove ‘C’ what do you get? ‘SAD’ Recently the so called SADISTIC leaders attended a funeral ceremony in Harare and applauded their ‘fallen comrade’ as a ‘hero’ who oversaw the successful demise of the Zimbabwean dollar sending millions of Zimbabweans into the abyss of dire poverty while the henchmen live in extravagant abundance. Hence, the name SADC!!!! They are coming to give Malawi some assistance on her way to the same fate that has befallen Zimbabwe!! They disguise themselves as supporters of electoral justice. It’s a scam!
