Mutharika bemoans vote ‘irregularities’, says MEC weren’t ready

Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) presidential candidate Professor Peter Mutharika on Tuesday blasted the Malawi Electoral Commission (MEC) of incompetence in delivering credible tripartite elections, citing “irregularities”.

Speaking after casting his vote at Goliati in Thyolo, Mutharika said he was saddened with reports of violence by disenfranchised voters.

He said the irregularities have not inspired confidence in the credibility of the polls.
