HRDC demands Ansah must go following ConCourt ruling

Human Rights Defenders Coalition (HRDC) chairperson Timothy Mtambo has demanded embattled Malawi Electoral Commission (MEC) chairperson Jane Ansah to voluntarily step down following Constitution Court  judgement ordering  fresh presidential election following the electoral body’s mismanaging the May 21 Tripartite Elections .

Ansah: Presided over Tippex election, court finds

Mtambo says HRDC is ready to hold more protests if the demands are not met.

The five-judge panel on Monday  nullified the  presidential election results owing to alteration of results sheets and the general results management system.

The court  said there was t widespread use of correction fluid, widely known for the famous brand Tipp-Ex, which was a serious irregularity that undermined the credibility of the elections.

“Now that the court has made its determination, Ansah should honourably resign. We are prepared to hold more protests if she does not announce her exit from MEC,” said Mtambo.

It an unanimous decision. All the five judges agreed with the ruling as read by Justice Healey Potani who was the lead judge for the five-judge panel of the Constitutional Court.

Court determines that fresh elections be held within 150 days (5 month). It has also determined that fresh elections consider 50+1 voting system.

The court ruled out to her incompetence of her managing elections positively The answer was already given for Jane Ansah to step down. Who will conduct the coming fresh election in Malawi again? The whole MEC body must be resolved b4 this June fresh election If really Devil Peoples Party still don’t understand about transparency then expect more woes will follow to oust Jane Ansah and her company.

Jezebel would still bizarrely pat herself on the back. She still would mention the word of God in vain. The woman is just evil. Devil living on earth.
Shops were looted, burnt…. there was chaos.
But still Jezebel like her DPP confidants thought amapanga ma demo were shear mbava, now the question is why did the same mbava loot after a court ruling this time?
Please thieves learn to accept anthu can easily read chilungamo. And with chilungamo there’s never violence, even mvava
