MEC commissioners in Mangochi for Malawi election postmortem

Malawi Electoral Commission (MEC) commissioners are in Mangochi for the post-mortem of the  May 21, 2019 Tripartite Elections as rights activists were sealing off their offices to force them resign.

The postmortem meeting also comes barely a day after the conclusion of a parliamentary hearing in Lilongwe to ascertain whether the commissioners are competent to hold and handle a Constitutional Court sanctioned fresh presidential election in five months time.

MEC chairperson Jane Ansah said the meeting would enable the President Peter Mutharika appointed commission to identify where they went wrong and how the situation could be improved next time.

Commissioner  bishop Mary Nkosi is the centre of attention following her revealing of the details of the flaws in the way MEC handled the now annulled presidential election.

She told the parliamentary hearing that most of the decisions were not made by the commissioners but were made by the chief executive officer Sam Alufandika which is against the law.

The Human Rights Defenders Coalition (HRDC) has since  sealed MEC offices across the country to force Ansah and the other commissioners resign following a Constitutional Court election case ruling which said the election was marred by irregularities and anomalies which had been so widespread, systematic and grave that they affected the results of the poll.

Why clinging to the job that u failed to perform??
I don’t understand their intention of these mec commissioners . U are thinking that u are bigger than Malawi ? Feel ashamed plz and some of u we hear that u are Bishops mmmmh I doubt about that.
U are just creating a selfhatred bcoz no matter what u do or try to explain, 70% of Malawians have already made their mind that u are corrupt and evil.
The best thing u can do to save your face is to resign .

It could have made a lot of sense if this postmortem meeting was held before that rushed appeal against the Concourt Judgement.
