Voter apathy has hit the second registration exercise in the central region, the opposition Malawi Congress Party (MCP) stronghold as the first day of the registration was marred by low turn out.
The second phase of the voter registration started on Friday in Ntchisi, Dowa, Mchinji and Nkhotakota.
In Ntchisi, the registration exercise was delayed because political party representatives reported for work late.
In Nkhotakota, the registration exercise was marred by faulty equipment.
At one centre, only 12 people had registered before the equipment was withdrawn because it was faulty.
Human rights activists are already in arms, telling the pollster, the Malawi Electoral Commission to ensure that the second phase of the registration exercise is well organised.Follow and Subscribe Nyasa TV :
