July 20 demo set: Activists call on Ansah, MEC commissioners resign

Human Rights Defenders Coalition (HRDC) say they will hold a peaceful protest on June 20 to force Malawi Electoral Commission (MEC) and other commissioners resign.

MEC chairperson Jane Ansah and her commissioners

HRDC chairperson Timothy Mtambo said the resort to protests follows MEC failure to respond to HRDC letter dated June 4 for Ansah to resign following her dismal performance to manage the May 21 presidential poll.

“We are calling upon her to resign because of her failure and the whole commission to handle the presidential results,” said Mtambo.

He said the massive malpractices and irregularities have forced the rights groups to hold the protests in Blantyre, Lilongwe, Zomba and Mzuzu.

Arrogant MEC says she can not resign. Only APM can sack her. So she did what she did coz she was and is serving her master.

This nonsense of the president choosing MEC whatever should be abolished.
Malawians should be choosing thru ballot. In that way that person will be serving Malawians not one person, president. Malawians should be able to fire that individual if they do Madando style.

Is this failure a POLITICIAN or a HUMAN RIGHT ACTIVIST? I think it’s high time he starts politics …Timothy and his friend has proved to us that they are nothing but total failures – they recieve millions of kwachas in the name of innocent Malawians who usually face the consequences of participating in demos. You are very EVIL because your own children do not take part in these demos but rather you organize demos for other people to take part so that whatever happens to them in the streets, your children and relatives are very safe at home and others… Read more »

Good and responsible thinking Jamax. This shows that you are living. We can’t afford to sacrifice the future of our children on the altar of politics or irresponsible human rights. Thumbs up baba.
