Alfandika: Second test on Monday

A statement from MEC chief elections officer Sam Alfandika says the commission has also taken into consideration suggestions received from electoral stakeholders.

“During the exercise, MEC will place staff and equipment in all the 197 tally centres and also set up a testing main tally centre in Blantyre.

“The Polling Equipment Staff will be given sample results to be used for the purpose of the test transmission from the constituency tally centres to the main tally centre,” reads part of the statement.
