Ansah says ‘satisfied job well done’ on Malawi elections:  ‘Decision of  majority voters, accept it with grace’

Malawi Electoral Commission (MEC) chairperson Justice Dr Jane Mayemu Ansah has said she will be satisfied with her handling of the May 21 Tripartite Elections despite concerns of voter irregularities as  Tipp-Ex correction fluid was widely used on tally sheets, prompting the main opposition Malawi Congress Party (MCP) to file a lawsuit.

Ansah: When your conscious is clear, you don’t look over your shoulder

Ansah admitted that Tipp-Ex – once the favourite tool of office workers who had to cover up typing mistakes, had been used on some result sheets at polling stations.

But she said the commission did not supply any correction fluid as part of the election material.

Asked is she will walk talk to have handled the elections well, Ansah said: “I will be satisfied with what I have done. When your conscious is clear, you don’t look over your shoulder.”

The judge at the Supreme Court of Malawi and Senior Councel in the legal profession, said she  worked as Attorney General and  left  not looking over my shoulders.”

Said Ansah: “ When all this is done, I will pat myself on the shoulder for a job well done.”

In declaring the official results of presidential polls which President Peter Mutharika of the governing Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) has been re-elected, Ansah said for those who  have not made in the elections, “I say that this is the decision of the majority of Malawian voters and we must accept it with grace and generosity. ”

She continued: “And I encourage you to continue to play your part in building Malawi into a greater nation. “

Ansah had also a take away message for the nation : “I wish to say that what binds us together as Malawians is much stronger than what separates us into political parties. Let us all work together to serve our country and to give our future generation a better, stronger and prosperous Malawi.”

She said election is a serious business as  it defines the leadership and development of the entire country, therefore, the process cannot be rushed.

“The Commission is not only responsible for preparing results but also for ensuring that the results are credible and that all grievances and complaints are duly addressed,” she said.

Ansah said the elections were free and fair.

In 2014 everyone knows the DPP stole the vote by hacking the MEC’s network system. No Tippex was ever reported to have been used to conceal any malpractice. In this election DPP’s plan A, used in the 2014 elections collapsed completely as many stakeholders were well prepared to uncover any network related interference. DPP had to come with plan B. The Tippex White It All. If you carefully analyze MEC’s statement on the use of Tippex through their chairperson, Jane Ansah, you will notice that : She does not condemn the use of Tippex but acknowledges it being widely used… Read more »

From the word go I doubted the ability of MEC to conduct credible elections looking at the composition of this body.

1. Most of the Commissioners are DPP mercenaries masquerading as real Commisioners. Shame on you Ansah and your evil team. God is not a respecter of a person. People are crying because of your selfish decision. Know this, soon or later God will arise in His anger to save the nation.

Jane Ansah stood strong in the whole process. It is unfortunate that some of us are ungrateful. Leading an election is not an easy task. She deserves a pat on the shoulder. Her courage showed that she is a woman of God. God did not make a mistake to appoint her for such a big task. Some of us are heroes on social media but we are miserable leaders of our families. No wonder we are here castigating an innocent woman who sacrificed everything for smooth running of elections. I beseech God to forgive you for all your insults and… Read more »
