CFT Commander-in-Chief Timothy Mtambo said this at a media briefing on Tuesday in Lilongwe.

He also issued fresh calls calls for Malawi Electoral Commission (MEC) chairperson Jane Ansah and the other commissioners to step down or be fired.

However, the commissioners have not hinted on intentions to resign so has President Peter Mutharika indicated he will not fire them as being pressured by the CSOs and opposition parties.

Mtambo said in order for Malawi to have a free and fair Election, there must be a credible MEC chairperson to preside over the Election.

He has since demanded the resignation and firing of the current commissioners and that there needs to be what he christens as a credible election management system.

Mtambo says the movement demands that there should be a credible process and procedure should be followed in all administrative practices.

And credible elections means the electro commission should be the referee and not the player,or in other words they should be neutral,opposition can lose and accept defeat with dignity,but not what we saw last year,tyat was pathetic,its high time we put age limit on mec commissioners aswell,35 years up to 50 yrs,no kore than that,

If contestants dictate how the election is conducted then mec is not independent. Credible elections does not mean opposition should win…..
