Former main opposition, the Malawi Congress Party (MCP) has taken the Malawi Electoral Commission (MEC) to court to force the pollster not to release the presidential vote result until all anomalies were cleaned up.

The MLS lawyers were in the chambers at the High Court in Lilongwe on Sunday along with MEC and MCP lawyers.

MCP believes that the ruling Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) doctored and manipulated the presidential vote result as the number of votes cast could not tally with those of the registered voters.

The MCP says the number of the votes cast far much outnumbered the number of registered voters in some areas especially in the Lower Shire and the Lhomwe belt.

Even a Std 1 kid knows that this elections has been rigged by an inside job! Most MEC officials are compromised and the way MEC handled the anomaly leaves a lot to be desired! Thus was my first and last vote in Malawi! Getting a f-ck out of this shitty country.

This country will go no where if people with dishonest hearts are on the top. The wickedness of man is so intense even if the votes will be recounted amidst those who will do the recounting somebody will still rig the votes. Re -election will demand a lot of money and off course at the end even the results of the re-election will not be fair enough. We need God to root out the corrupt system that has been operating in this nation.
