MEC commissioner muzzles people over credibility queries

Malawi Electoral Commission (MEC) commissioner Moffat Banda on Sunday tried in vain to silence people over questions of the pollster credibility, saying the issue was in court.

MEC commissioner Moffat Banda: Wait for court

This was during the launch of by-elections in Lilongwe south constituency at Malingunde TDC.

“This issue is in court and no one knows what the outcome would be,” he said.

He said people should trust the commission that it will carry out the job of conducting the by-election professionally and successfully.

Banda said this after some stakeholders expressed mistrust following what they called massive irregularities during the May 21 elections.

Another launch of a by-election was also being held in Matenje ward in Kasungu north west at Chulu TDC.

Political parties, aspiring candidates, civil society organisations, members of the faith community and traditional leaders are among those attending the launch of the by-elections.

This comes at a time when opposition parties and other independent political stakeholders have asked MEC to suspend the holding of the by-elections in view of the credibility loss among the commissioners, including the MEC chair Jane Ansah following the highly contested May 21 elections.

Let’s face the truth, despite the outcome of the courts we know elections were rigged, Mec messed up. Even if government lawyers argue their case well and win, yes legally that should be accepted but it does not does not take away the truth and the truth is MEC messed up the results and MEC under Ansah has lost credibility, we all know she leans towards DPP and she sympathised with DPP. You have no moral ground to hold any elections unless there is a new team or leader at MEC saying the least. The fact that not any single… Read more »

Princes of thieves have destroyed Malawi………………………………………………………………………………………..!!

Hate it or take it but it's a fact

They are not legible to hold another election these commissioners, they must be a chamed. They don’t have moral ground to convince the people of their credibility.

What Moffat Banda and his fellow crooks are doing is to down grade to what is in court and if MCP is dull then they conduct by elections otherwise people have lost trust in the whole MEC team. Anyway I wished MDF would by now have taken over all this nonsense on ground in the country BUT Alas!! since they have just been promoted they are tied up and instead they are like Police Cadets now. NYASI IZI KUKHALA DZIKO LA KUNJA BWENZI PANO NYASI ZONSENZI KULIBE. AKASINJA PATSOGOLO UPEREKEZA MUNTHU KOYENDA. THIS IS NOW MALAWI DRC

The country needs change. People act with impunity. People tell you that we have lost trust in you but you cling on and say do trust us. Please go and leave for others to run the affairs of the country.
