MEC dismisses MCP candidate for nullification of  Karonga results: UTM won ‘fair and square’

Malawi Electoral Commission (MEC) has thrown out a petition by a Malawi Congress Party parliamentary candidate to nullify Tuesday by-election in Karonga north west.

MEC has since declared Tuesday’s by-elections as “credible” adding that the election was conducted in a free and fair environment.

The pollster has dismissed the petition by MCP candidate in Karonga North West Daniel Chitonya to disqualify UTM candidate Felix Katwafu and also order a recount of the votes.

Chitonya claimed that there were irregularities but MEC has dismissed his claim and gone ahead to declare the UTM candidate winner.

Izi zinali ziphwisi za zisankho. Just look at the voter apathy. Less than 50% of registered voters actually voted in most instances. And you call these elections credible and representative enough? Uyu Kachale is there just to make allowances for his MEC officials basi. Why rush these useless bye-elections instead of conducting them when covid cases reduce and also after the rainy season???? Stupid Kachale!!!

You wanted Kachale to go in people’s houses on a polling day and drag them to vote? Headless human thing!

You must check your brains…MEC follows their rules and regulations,you can’t tell them what to do.
Dr.Kachale,is so far the best MEC have had.
If you don’t have sensible issues to say,don’t comment,stay mute.
Ndiwe galu kwabasi.
Leave MEC alone,ayendere zofuna za anthu a MEC,ulikupusa chomene iwe Marumbo…wapulika?
What’s up me,I must civilize you.
