Former Malawi MPs demand fresh parliamentary election

Over 120 former Members of Parliament who lost during the May21, 2019 parliamentary elections are raising money to hire lawyers who would seek a fresh parliamentary poll.

Mwenifumbo and  Atupele among those seeking a do-again parliamentary elections 

This follows a ruling by the Constitutional Court on the landmark election case which the court ordered the nullification of the election and ordered for a fresh election in five months time.

Among others the former MPs include: Frank Mwenefumbo, Patricia Kaliati, Henry Mussa and Atupele Muluzi.

One of the former members of parliament said currently the former legislators have been making contributions to support their case.

Mwenefumbo said the MPs feel there should be a re-run for the whole tripartite election as the Constitutional Court has found MEC on the wrong on how it managed presidential elections.

The Constitutional Court nullified the presidential election, saying the irregularities and anomalies have been so widespread, systematic and grave that the integrity of the results had been seriously compromised.

Malawi belong to the citizens

My advice is that just start preparing for the 2024 general elections.For the 2019 general election you lost. Accept defeat guys.The people in your constituencies are very very important people (VVIP).If they did not vote for you to represent them in parliament it means you didn’t listen or you did not do what they wanted.There was some cheating from you guys.Do not cheat or lie to the citizens.Respect voters, that’s rule number one if you want to represent them in parliament.

The court received petitions for presidential election. None of the MPs presented any petition on your madando. Akakhala Atupele, anachita yekha zopusa kukolekana mkhosi ndi DPP osamvera zomwe omutsatira ake amamuuza pofuna kuteteza bambo wake ku mlandu komanso his own greed. His supporters got disappointed with him. Chisankho sichinayendedi bwino, koma munali kuti? Nthawi yonseyi munangokhala chete.

An issue these former MP’s could still challenge MEC on is the use of ”plurality’ in deciding election winners for all parliamentary seats instead of ‘majority’ (50% + 1) as dictated by the constitution where there would have been fresh elections in more than 90% of the contests!!!

The Concourt judges have in effect annulled the entire tripartite polls.

In law, a judgement that courts make can have a serious implication on an issue that was not brought to court. MEC failed in all the tripartite elections.

These former MP’s are exposing there ignorance of PPE Act Section 100(1) that requires directly petitioning (in writing) the High Court within seven(7) days of the declaration of the result of the election!

It will have to be determined wether a credible election is bigger than a 7 day rule.
