HRDC hail MEC chair Kachale for inspiring confidence on credible elections

The Human Rights Defenders Coalition (HRDC) which has been organising mass protests against Malawi Electoral Commission (MEC) former chairperson Jane Ansah, has hailed the new head of the electoral body Dr Chifundo Kachale for his professional management of the electoral processes.

Trapence: Government should prevent to the poorest and most vulnerable of society

Speaking at a news conference  in Lilongwe, HRDC leader Gift Trapence said Malawians are confident that Kachale will manage the Tuesday court-sanctioned fresh presidential  election with “integrity and professionalism.”

The HRDC has since demanded regular  updates through media briefings from MEC on the electoral process.

It also wants political party representatives be given space during press briefings to comment on the electoral process including informing the public on possible electoral complaints.

They want unofficial results be announced by MEC officials at district level via the media before being sent to National Tally Center.

On February 3, the High Court sitting in Lilongwe as the Constitutional Court (ConCourt) annulled the presidential election, saying they were marred by a plethora of irregularities. The court therefore ordered Parliament to make provisions for holding of fresh presidential election within 150 days.

We all must be vigilant at this time. The MEC chair is doing his part and all of us must do so likewise. Those that are assigned tasks must do so with diligence. Our Tonse monitors must be early enough otherwise they are giving room for these mercenaries to advance their agenda. So yes, the process should not wait because Tonse monitors are late instead everyone should arrive early enough to avoid such suspicions. If Tonse monitors are deliberately late then they have a problem, they should not be on this task in the first place. At this time, everything… Read more »
