MEC appeals to Malawi Supreme Court on re-run in Mangochi West Constituency

The Malawi Electoral Commission (MEC) has appealed to the Malawi Supreme Court of Appeal the case in which it was ordered by the High Court to conduct a re-run in Mangochi West Constituency.

Mwafulirwa: MEC has appealed

According to MEC spokesperson Sangwani Mwafulirwa, the commission  noticed that some facts and evidence might have not been considered in the case.

On December 20 2019, High Court Judge Sylvester Kalembera, ordered MEC to conduct the re-run in the constituency having what he described as irregularities and inconsistencies in the results.

Independent candidate Simeon Harrison challenged the parliamentary results following MEC’s declaration of Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) candidate Geoffery Chiwondo as winner.

MEC. Your job is to conduct elections. Akawuzani kuti mukapange zisankho inu mukukana. Ndiye mupange resign if you don’t want to do your job.

Its not a question of being ordered to conduct rerun but facts on the ground so if they find anything tangible they have the right to do so my friend.

MEC’s credibility to be neutral is questionable. This body needs an overhaul from theirs acts, commissioners, employees, and non established workers. The MEC body should be neutral to all all Malawians. What I see here is MEC affiliated organization. God help us court case should bring sanity to mother Malawi
