June 23 for Malawi fresh presidential election endorsed by Parliamentary committee 

Legal Affairs committee of parliament has endorsed the Malawi Electoral Commission (MEC) proposal that the court sanctioned fresh presidential election be held on June 23 2020 and not July 2.

Attorney General Kalekeni Kaphale has advised the members of the legal committee that the mandate to choose a date lies in the hands of Parliament.

This followed a meeting which the committee held Thursday in Lilongwe with MEC commissioners and Attorney General Kalekeni Kaphale.

Chairperson of Legal Affairs Committee Kezzie Msukwa said after the meeting which was held in camera that the committee agreed that MEC should continue  with preparations for  elections  to be held on June 23, 2020.

“As parliament,  we will make a law on the date, even in the case of a run-off, for the coming election,” he said.

But Msukwa said the committee will not completely follow the advice of the Attorney General for free, fair, transparent and credible election, saying Kaphale is compromised in his stand having represented MEC in the court case in which the Constitutional Court nullified the presidential poll.

On the bills that President Peter Mutharika rejected, Msukwa said the meeting has agreed that only pieces of the legislation guiding a possible run-off and election date should be tabled and that the rest should be tabled after elections when the country will be politically stable.

Bring it on Apm- Atupele 2020!! You can’t say you are voting for change while voting for a N’gona party ya nkhanza, In alliance with former Dpp-UDF rejects (actually everyone of them lost parliamentary seats) a thieving cashgate Queen former president. Terrorist Mtambo. What change is that?? Kufuna Kuwotcha dziko?? Lest be serious. Other than point out what’s wrong with Dpp, chakwera has offered zero solutions

Tonse alliance is saying fertilzer will be reduced from Mk25,000 to MK4,495.Corruption will be the a thing of the past,our tax money will be saved to finance reduced prices of fertilizer. Giving Government business to Mulli and top positions only to Lomwes will be a thing of the past, Malawi will once again be for all of us.MK100,000 zero rated income thresh hold from MK45,000 and many more bras Bauleni.

@Mofolo is an idiot. The Concourt judges set the dates as ‘within 150 days’ but the Evil Jezebel set July 2 which most of us were surprise with. The guidance from the Supreme Court is the one that has reminded everyone that the date should be by 23 July

Not a problem with that what we need is that Jane should not be a commissioner for the coming election. We know why she wants this to happen earlier before her days are expired. She is a physical devil. Nobody wants her. We could never re-vote if she wasn’t the head. How much she was been paid?

Izi zili ngati anthu omwe amakwatira mkazi okongola kenako kumakachita hayala afisi oti adzipinda mkazi’yo. Osangokhala batchala bwanji?

Pano ndi Mgeme Kalilani yemwe wayamba kumayakhula ngati ka president kakang’ono!
