Chakwera first, Mutharika last to present nomination papers – MEC

Malawi Electoral Commission [MEC] has released a schedule for presentation of nomination papers by the presidential hopefuls ahead of the forthcoming highly expected fresh elections set for 2nd July, 2020.

Chakwera and Chilima the alliance ticket

Despite keeping a tight lead on who will represent the grand opposition alliance, going  by the schedule, Malawi Congress Party [MCP] President Dr. Lazarus Chakwera is likely to lead the famous MCP/UTM Alliance.

Chakwera came second behind President Peter Mutharika during the disputed May 19th controversial elections while Chilima was on position three.

A statement released by MEC on Monday indicates that the first candidate to present his papers on Wednesday 6th May, 2020 at 9am is Chakwera.

At 11:00am, it will be a turn for Peter Kuwani of Mbakuwaku Movement for Development while Ras Chikomeni David Chirwa and Reverend Hadwick Kaliya-both independent  candidates -will present their papers in the afternoon the same day.

The nomination presentation continues on Thursday with three independent candidates namely Khwechani Wesuze Nkhoma, Phunziro Mvula and Smart Swira while ruling Democratic Progressive Party [DPP] and incumbent Malawi President Peter Mutharika will be wrapping up the show.

“The commission has put in place measures to ensure the safety of the candidates and their supporters in view of the Covid-19 pandemic. Candidates and delegates are advised to observe these measures” reads a statement signed by MEC Chief Elections Officer Sam Alufandika.

Mec and its fools are not capable of managing this elections. What measures are the oppositions taking to stop these thief call-dpp from stealing again? If you do not do something now am afraid will face the same problem.

The fact is, the cumbent president Hon. Professor Mutharika is likely to win. Utm must join Dpp, Udf alliance because there is no way Mcp will win this election. U are very young u dont know what Mcp did to the republic of Malawi. They are power hungry people.

My messages to Hon Mia, please stay put in MCP remember you are the Vice President of the Party. In other words, you are second in command as far as MCP is concerned. Do not allow any temptations from the marauding DPP, they want to provide their relevance behind you, Sir. This is no time to make hasty decisions. People will certainly say a lot of things because remember DARKNESS HATES LIGHT. EVIL HATES UNITY. BUT THOSE WHO FEAR GOD WILL CHERISHJ UNIT AND WILL CERTAINLY CELEBRATE LIGHT WHEN IT DAWNS ON THEM. May God Bless You.

Bwana Betha, LIGHT dawned in Malawi in 1994 when rule by Khongilesi was brought to an end. When people could now move freely in Malawi without being arrested for not having a party card, when our women no longer were forced to walk kilometers to dance for Kamuzu, when people started worshiping freely, when there ceased to be political prisoners exiled outside Malawi, when suspects no longer needed to be fed to crocodiles or thrown in Shire river but suspects were first convicted by a competent court of law and then sent to much fairer jails, when government started tolerating… Read more »

Just to remind you Sir that Bakili Muluzi was once the secretary general of this Khongelesi party and that Dausi was one of the influential people in the very same party.Remember also that Chakwera was no where in the leadership of mcp then.

As far as the constitution stands, UTM is not represented and therefore technically out of the running for political office for the next five years. Cabinet posts are not guaranteed because that is the prerogative of the president. UTM is dead.

DPP cadets don’t understand what Chilima said. He said ” it’s me or Chakwera to be alliance leader” simple and strt. It’s you who didn’t know but they themselves knew. What we MCPUTM alliance want to do is to kill DPP and we don’t want it. This party has to go becz is evil. We are sufffering becz of these crooks. Chakwera and Chilima will transform this country.

I don’t see any problem here, am wondering why other Malawians are regarded as not Malawians? I mean who are Malawians? Is it only those who are in Government? What does it mean when you say, salawanawo m,Boma? This is the biggest challenge we have. We are all in the Government of Malawi, we all pay tax, we all suffer, we all need to fight any problem that can face us, please fellow commentators let’s see ourselves be in one boat please! Your happiness should feel be for every one! This is division all what we are doing here! Chilima… Read more »

Zoona, SKC cannot read what MCP has written on the wall. He should remember that a MCP sanaiwale what he said last year during his campaigns, he said ” MCP sidzalamulira dziko lino”, and he was right. He just forgot to say that even he himself, sadzakhala President.
