Malawi former president Joyce Banda has expressed satisfaction with the electoral process as Malawians are voting to elect the country’s President for the next five years in a court-ordered fresh presidential election.
Some 6.8-million Malawians from a population of 18-million are registered to cast their votes between 6am and 6pm at polling stations across the country.
Speaking when she casted her vote at Malemia primary school in Traditional Authority Malemia in Zomba district, Banda said she expects a better Malawi after the vote.
“It is my sincere hope that all Malawians will do the same and also will maintain peace and order,” said the former leader.
The main contendors in Tuesday’s elections are Malawi Congress Party (MCP) president Lazarus Chakwera alongside Saulos Chilima; President Peter Mutharika alongside Atupele Muluzi and Peter Kuwani of Mbakuwaku Movement for Development (MMD) and whose running mate is MacLeonard Kalawang’oma.
