MCP ask Mutharika to concede defeat in Malawi fresh presidential elections

Malawi Congress Party (MCP)whose president Lazarus Chakwera is set to win the fresh presidential elections has urged  the incumbent President Peter Mutharika to concede defeat and allow smooth transition of power even though the final tally had not yet been released.

Mkaka: It is better DPP concede

MCP secretary general Elsenhower Mkaka  contend that Chakwera certain victory is a true reflection of the voting pattern of Malawians seeking change  in what he called  credible, free and fair elections.

Speaking in interview at the main tally centre at College of Medicine in Blantyre, Mkaka said: “We are exhilarated, excited with how the election has been conducted.”

He added:“President Mutharika must acknowledge his defeat and start talks on the transfer to a new government.”

Mkaka said the opposition has been impressed by the handling of complaints and the secure results handling system instituted by the new Malawi Electoral  Commission (MEC)  led by Justice  Dr Chifundo Kachale.

“I will dub this year’s elections the most credible, free and fair. Within the shortest period of time they have delivered what every Malawian believes to be a free and fair election.

“They didn’t have time and resources, but they still managed to deliver an election that will go down in history as one of he most credible,” he said.

Mkaka said the unofficial results show  Chakwera is leading by over a million vote.

“But we’re, like a family that is expectant, they will celebrate inside their house but they will wait for the baby to be delivered and then they can celebrate outside,” he said.

Mkaka said it is the Commission that is mandated to declare the official results.

The unofficial results show that the Chakwera has amassed  2,630,472 or 59.7 percent of the votes, Mutharika is second with 1,743,173 while Kuwani has finished third with 32,248 or less than one percent of the votes.

God is not a Man that we can fool. A true Leader listens to his people. When you are a President it does not mean you are a King. Leaders take the concerns of their people to heart. And they are Servants of the people who elected them; not Masters of the People. Above all, should be God fearing. The Bible says those who lack wisdom, ask it from God. This is a warning to the in-coming President. Please Read PROVERBS 29 VERSE 4. This has a stinging warning to the greedy and corrupt Leaders. God Bless Malawi. We are… Read more »

I know there’s is a lot of political prostitution in Malawi where people change party like they are changing underwear. The message to the new leadership is this, please do not entertain any of these people from DPP to jump into Tonse government. They do not represent the change Malawians have fought for.

Is it that the only election that MCP calls free and fair is the one in which they are winners?
The judicial commissioners review case that was started was in anticipation of possible loss. When MCP won, suddenly the commissions have no case and case withdrawn. Next don’t use courts to settle political battles.

Cadet walira mokweza. The court didn’t vote. It’s the ordinary Malawians who delivered the knockout blow. Kuzolowela kuba basi

Mutharika lacks Malawian Umunthu, so it is very unlikely he will concede defeat this early if at all!! He treats political rivals as personal enemies! It makes me wonder if this clueless, brainless and shameless octagonarian is Malawian at all!!!

Mutharika is a coward with zero leadership skills, it takes a real man to concede defeat. I am sure Mutharika is still listening to ridiculous and emotional ideas from first lady and cadets about how they can still hold on to state house. He might not even show up to the swearing in ceremony.

You know what BigMan, you are probably right. All that shifting around of the Army Commanders had evil intent written all over it.
