MEC chairwoman Jane Ansah: Her embattled commission to make final say

Wilson Tchale, a MEC official in Bakaka said the MCP candidate Abraham Makhauli was disqualified from the Liwaradzi ward in Balaka north constituency local government poll because the form he filled had errors which included lack of 10 signatures from the ward.
