MEC falls again as Malawi Supreme Court dismiss application to extend fresh elections: With costs

Nyekhwe! That’s the what the locals are saying in local slang describing the decision by the Malawi Supreme Court of Appeal to dismiss Malawi Electoral Commission (MEE) application to vary the Constitutional Court order in order to allow the commission extend the period for holding fresh elections.

MEC chairwoman Jane Ansah: Her embattled commission falls again in court 

MEC filed the application on the ground that there is Covid-19 outbreak.

But Justice Anaclet Chipeta told the court that the issues which MEC brought are already in the affidavits which  the electoral body filed to the court in an appeal case.

The court dismissed MEC outright, with costs.

MEC embattled chairwoman Jane Ansah is a judge of the Supreme Court.

Jane ansah is stonecold woman who loses like no one in the world. Her qualifications needs a review. You can not lose on daily basis and still put on a happy face like hers ,well better yoy get your pay but your fellow Judges has exposed your incompetence beyond comprehension. I think you were appointed when there was no one else to be appointed or otherwise It takes courage to accept and stand down and there is no shame in that .actually its one of the best way to accept your failure to carry out your responsibilities with due diligence,… Read more »

In all fairness to MEC, organizing elections at this time is not easy. Many states in the US have postponed the primary and their election bodies are far better endowed than our MEC. I am not sure that the judges and justices are fully measuring what it takes to run an election. Look, I am not sure that MCP and UTM must let a hush hush election take place. Be careful what you wish for, but do not be a wiper on July 3!!

A Big Lie. In America in the State of Wisconsin, two days ago, they were VOTING in the midst of Corona Virus pandemic. Remember, USA has 640,000 infected people and over 27, 000 deaths and on top of that, America has the Highest number of infected people in the world yet the did organize voting. What can STOP Malawi from Voting with 17 cases of Corona Virus infected people. Zambia, Tanzania and Mozambique has Corona Virus pandemic, infected people, But they have Not implemented LOCKDOWN. WORLD HEALTH ORGANIZATION has advised African Countries not just COPY AND PASTE, the issue of… Read more »

We can and will vote as long as social distancing is observed. Jane and NTCHONA, please stop clinging on to your jobs illegally. Your time is up and now running out of new thieving ideas. South Koreans have just voted while observing social distancing.

The direction the court will give is to remove APM and SKC and replace them with a council comprising the chief justice and the chief secretary, army commander and police chief. Of the four 3 are thyolo while 1 north . Akayiwona.

The ruling has nothing to do with the tribe of an individual. Guys let us just accept the truth, Atumbuka anatiposa basi. Titukwana mpaka kuzinyelera koma na Mtumbuka ndi Benz. Ife kwathu kuno xool tinachedwa nayo. These Tumbukas are not many but they are everywhere with good jobs. This is so becz they education is in their blood. Go to my village in Thyolo, this era boys and girls don’t know how to read zoona. Nde tizingotukwana Atumbuka apa tipindula chani. Go to colleges, these people are stars and their positions at work are not by chance or nepotism. These… Read more »
