HRCC goes to court to stop Ansah,  MEC commissioners from conducting Malawi fresh polls

Malawi Electoral Commission (MEC) commissioners are now facing fresh litigation after a rights group says it is going to court to stop the pollster’s commissioners from conducting the July 2 presidential election.

Malawi Electoral Commission, Chairperson, Jane Ansah Sc interacts with a Commissioner,  Masteni Banda: Lost public trust and credibility

The Human Rights Consultative Committees  (HRCC) executive director Robert Mkwezalamva says his organization is seeking a restraining order to stop the current MEC Commissioners from holding the poll following last week’s Supreme Court ruling.

He said HRCC has made the move following MEC’s failure to secure its database, a thing that has resulted in unauthorized persons accessing the system.

This also follows the recent move by the Supreme Court to uphold the Constitutional Court order for a fresh election, in which the court also admonished the commissioners over their role in the elections.

However, the commissioners have indicated they will carry on until their contracts end this June.

Mkwezalamba expressed excitement that the court has addressed some of their concerns such as registration of underage but says there is more that the court should address.

He has since said they expect there will be peace in the country should the current commissioners step down.

Malawians should not be carried away by Mkwezalamba, he is a serpent in the grass. He does not mean business, he will go to court with a weak case so that the court can easily throw it away, effectively saving the Commissioners from the chop. This guy is looking for something big, but he doesn’t want to come out openly. Time will tell.

Only corrupt and old fools cannot see that the time for Dpp is over. Firstly they didn’t win 2019 so what will make them victorious this time? Since everyone knows that they rigged the elections now its time for them to test their own urine.

Thanks, that’s the way to go. MEC commissioners should know that the country belong to all Malawians not Peter Munthalika.

TUMBUKA COURT has already shown its colors, BUT the Ballot will talk. 2 July DPP we go again, cement our mandate with no doubts. UDF and DPP HAVE NEVER LOST AN ELECTION WHILE IN POWER. We reject MCP. We fought had to get MCP out of power and stay out of power, noway we can late N’GONA come back.”THAT would be like children of Israel allowing Pharaoh to conquer them twice. NEVER GONA HAPPEN!!!!

Actually these are the type of people who mislead the president. A region with high illiteracy levels and high employment rates in public sector can not produce positive or desired results. You can’t have all attributes like highly populated, high illiteracy levels, high levels of poverty, perennial hunger and less farming land. You are lucky that Chikwawa and Nsanje population is well distributed and they are feeding you lomwes.
