Commentator faults MEC for fixing voter registration exercise for fresh polls

A political commentator says it is irregular for the Malawi Electoral Commission (MEC) to hold the registrar of voters exercise on March 10 without consulting political parties.

Mvula:  No Necof meeting

MEC says it will hold the registration exercise from March 10 in central region amid questions on the legality of the exercise after the Constitutional Court and the Public Appointments Committee of parliament found that the MEC commissioners were incompetent to handle another election.

The political commentator Humphrey Mvula said MEC should have consulted the political parties through the national elections consultative forum (Necof) meetings.

“This is the beginning of rigging process. There has never been Necof meetings to agree on this, the opposition needs to be careful,” he said.

He also said that it was illegal for the MEC commissioners to hold another election after they were disqualified by the Constitutional Court and the Public Appointments Committee.

President Peter Mutharika is yet to fire the commissioners following recommendations from the parliamentary committee.

“These commissioners are illegally holding on to their office. Even the chief executive officer Mr Sam Alufandika has been found to be incompetent, this is why parliament has appointed the clerk of parliament to handle the next election,” said Mvula.

He said the ruling Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) just wants to rig the forthcoming presidential election in the confusion it is deliberately creating.

Why does MEC start with Central region during every voter registration? MCP leadership why do you allow this? This is another rigging strategy, coz truth be told the dpp uses the Central region voter registration outcome to come up with voter awareness meetings in the South for numbers to counter what normally comes out from the Centre. This time around, it could be proper to give the Central region people time to wait and be the last!! Chakwera and Mkaka please open your eyes!!

But how do Malawians waste time listening to this charcoal-black thief called Mvula? Of all people we have, is Mvula an exemplary person? Mvula store huge sums of money from Stagecoach Bus Company up to the point of making it bankrupt and closed. Is he holly today just because he is Tumbuka? Shame on you northerners who see evil only on southerners. Iwe Mvula kagwere ukooooo!!!!

That’s very true, I side with you. How can Mvula be a political commentator, he is a real thug who brought down Stagecoach, he is trying to clear his wrong doings, and starting to smear people with lies. He is another failure in politics. Ask him to talk about Stagecoach and hear is thuggery views.

Nkhani yake iti……….. mpaka charcoall black? Iwenso Nyekwe1 nde ndiwe nyekweditu!! Do we have a perfect person under the sun? APM is known to have dubiously pocketed K145m re you perfect? APM is known to have dubiously pocketed K145m can we regard him as a perfect person? God gave us chance to repent, are you aware of that? Did Mvula ever told you he doesn’t make mistakes? Irrespective of whatever he looks like to you, are you seriously thinking there is nothing in what he has said and is outright nonsense?
