Ballot papers for March 30  by-elections jet in Sunday

Ballot papers for the March 30 by-elections arrive in the country Sunday, Malawi Electoral Commission (MEC) has said.

MEC chairperson Chifundo Kachale: Printing of ballot papers were done in Dubai

The ballot papers were printed in Dubai.

The ballot papers were initially supposed to arrive on March 26, but a flight hired by the printing company is ready to dispatch the cargo on March 21.

MEC is therefore informing political parties of the changes and that the ballot papers will be kept in Lilongwe until time for distribution.

The by-elections will be held in seven constituencies and two wards following the death of office bearers as well as fulfillment of court orders.

These include Karonga North West, Ntchisi North, Lilongwe Nsinja South, Zomba Changalume, Lividzi ward in Balaka West and Chitakale ward in Mulanje South.

Compromised MEC

But why don’t we print ballot papers within Malawi? Nanga tima bye-elections tomweti mpakana ndege kunja? MANEB prints exams in Malawi, what can stop MEC from printing ballot papers in Malawi and just increase security on the same? By the way, how come that government is quick in spending billions of kwachas on elections just to put useless people in political positions and yet government is slow in attending to concerns of our teachers who are very very important? Isn’t education more developmental than politics? What do we really benefit from these unending elections by useless MEC?
