Malawi election ballot papers in June 19

Malawi Electoral Commission (MEC) has resolved that the printing of printing papers should commence immediately ahead of the June 23 polls.

Kachale: Printing of ballot papers starts immediately

The MEC chairperson, Chifundo Kachale, says this follows the identification of the printer and also publishing in the Gazette the 23rd June, 2020 as the date of polling for the fresh Presidential Elections.

He said this follows the meeting on Thursday when the resolution of the Commission was communicated to the Dubai-based printer Al Ghurair Printing and Publishing PLC.

Kachale said in its response, the printer has said that it will take a minimum of seven days to print and package the ballot papers.

“All factors remaining constant, the ballot papers and associated electoral materials may be received by the Commission on 19th June at Kamuzu International Airport in Lilongwe in the presence of candidate’s representatives,” says Kachale in a statement.

Kachale said in the spirit of section 8(2) of the Electoral Commission Act, which empowers the Commission to communicate with the government, any political party , candidate, person or organisation, the MEC  will soon be directly engaging the candidates on the logistical challenges and possible mitigation measures.
