DPP parliamentary candidate loses poll case

Ruling Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) parliamentary candidate for Nsanje South West Hellen Buluma has lost her election case to an independent candidate.

Helen Buluma: DPP candidate lost the elections and now the case

High Court judge Jack N’riva has ruled that the Malawi Electoral Commission (MEC) declared winner Ntiza Valera was the rightful winner.

Valera won the parliamentary elections in the area with 12942 votes whilst Buluma scooped 5, 899.

Buluma asked the court to disqualify Valera, among other issues, because his supporters beat up the DPP candidate and he continued to campaign after the closure of the campaign window.

But N’riva said Buluma failed to give tangible evidence that Valera campaigned after the closure of the campaign window.

The judge also said the issue of the beating was criminal in nature and had nothing to do with the electoral laws which applies to the election cases.

I have read the whole story, the judgement on election case didn’t consider criminal activities as a reason to nullify election and call for rerun as prayed by the DPP candidate. Let us not celebrate, as we in opposition may face same blow on Presidential Case.

I don’t think we are here to correct other peoples mistake, English is not our first language hence we have to put our focus on the point of discussion/debate, not grammar.

You are not forced to write in English. Use your own lhomwe. But don’t massacre the Queen’s language. In fact you are better off stealing in lhomwe because of us we will not be able to understand your language of stealing at all

Kikkk seems English is the problem to understand, I can see you are even failing to read what the article is saying, dpp candidate lost a case to an independent MP, this shows that the case went through the court, why to throw away the other cases? Idiot.
