MEC shifts tally centre to College of Medicine

Election managers, the Malawi Eectoral Commission (MEC) has shifted its national tally centre from Comesa Hall to College of Medicine in Blantyre.

Duwa: College of Medicine will be tally centre

Commissioner Steve Duwa said all the election results for the June 23 court ordered presidential election will be forwarded to the college.

Students at the college are on mandatory leave following a government directive as a covid-19 preventive measure.

Duwa has however not given reasons for the change but analysts say this could be a sign that the new MEC commissioners, headed by Judge Dr. Chifundo Kachale wants to wear a new face following the pollster’s past tainted bad image.

Political parties and other electoral stakeholders are yet to comment on the decision by MEC to shift the tally centre.

This comes barely days after it was rumoured that MEC intended to move the tally centre to the capital, Lilongwe.

Moving the tally centre from Blantyre to Lilongwe is very good idea and its not too late. Very quickly identify an office and get fully prepared after elections. It is self to let information move all the way from Chitipa to Blantyre.

Capital City Lilongwe would be ideal place coz it is the centre of the Nation therefore anything to be done nationwide should be done at the centre of that particular country.

Moving the tally centre to Lilongwe after election should be an obvious requirement. Too late for now but in future that is where it should be, at the centre of the government and country.

Pure stupidity transporting votes from say chitipa to BT, why? To allow dpp to rig and steal? Or tamper with votes whilst on the their way. Votes should be counted at district level and results relayed directly to the main centre. Why are we still living in Stone Age up to now?
