Chakwera joins Chilima to snub EU over fresh Malawi elections observer report

Malawi Congress Party (MCP) president Lazarus Chakwera has joined his UTM Party counterpart Saulos Chilima in declining a proposed meeting with a visiting EU Elections Observer Mission which is due to arrive in the country Wednesday.

Chakwera has refused to meet a European Union (EU) Election Observer Mission (EOM) and asked the team to delay presentation of its final report on the disputed May 21 2019 Tripartite Elections.

The party’s Secretary General Eisenhower Mkaka has confirmed, saying the party has communicated its position to EU Mission in Lilongwe.

Earlier, MCP said it received an invitation to attend the meeting and will honour it.

However, Mkaka said MCP has reservations with the timing of the meeting and that Chakwera like Chilima will not be party to it.

“Dr Chakwera will not be attending the meeting, the EU could have presented their final report  before the elections case,” he said.

EU Deputy Head of Mission Aurelie Valtat, who is also head of the political and media office, said the arrival of the mission was normal and routine.

Valtat said it is  a “standard return mission” and that it is “not unique to Malawi.”

The EU EOM had 83 observers at 342 polling stations across 120 of the country’s 193 parliamentary constituencies in 27 of the 28 districts during the elections.

We have our own standard and not your borrowed standard. We don’t need u Europeans to lead us, we are capable to solve our own problems and stay away from this case.

Europeans are the very people causing havoc around the world, u created an Endless war in DRC bcoz u want to get minerals for free.

DRC is rich in minerals for making Cars, Batteries , computers and Cell phone and Gold but u Europeans have managed to cause no peace in that country the plan behind it is to smuggle these minerals.
