Mutharika insists on ‘clean’ win, says Malawi fresh elections ‘not the will of the people’

With  the Malawi Supreme Court of Appeal set to deliver its judgement  on Friday on an appeal of the Constitutional Court judgement filed by President Peter Mutharika and Malawi Electoral Commisison (MEC), Mutharika has insisted that he won the  nullified 2019 elections clean and that the fresh elections “is not the will of the people.”

Mutharika says the fresh election is not the will of the people. He insists that he won May 2019 elections and that the elections in 2019 were free, fair and credible.

Mutharika in his address as he presented his nomination papers to the MEC  for the July 2 presidential election.

He said Malawians voted last year in an election that was free, fair, peaceful and credible.

It was an election where people expressed their will, stressed the Malawi leader.

“I won that election. We won that election,” he said.

He added: “Only one year later, we are going to another election. This election is not the will of the people.”

A five-judge panel of the High Court of Malawi sitting as the Constitutional Court on February 3 nullified last year’s presidential election over alleged irregularities, especially in the results management system, as prayed by the country’s estranged Vice-President Saulos Chilima of UTM Party and  Lazarus Chakwera of Malawi Congress Party (MCP). The court ordered a fresh election in 150 days, which expires on July 3.

Meanwhile, the Malawi Supreme Court of Appeal  ill this Friday deliver its judgement on an appeal of the Constitutional Court judgement filed by MEC and Mutharika.

If the seven-judge Supreme Court panel upholds the judgement, the election will proceed. However, if it overturns the same, the vote will not take place.

Thanks supreme court, for decision to stop the registration of new voters simply becoz the DPP and UDF alliance are mbava and your MEC commissioners are allowing young people of 11 yrs 12,13,14,15,16 and 17 to register, to push forward figures so that you can find 20% of your total votes.The supreme court decision is good coz now DPP and UDF alliance will get 13% of total votes.You think malawians from Southern region are still sleeping no way ,they want money too for their children.Bakili Muluzi made money for his family and Bingu did the same, Peter Munthalika is doing… Read more »

Indeed the fresh election is not the will of people…..rather of the judiciary. It is now evident that the courts had set up to unseat govt of APM.
How can legal minds in the name of supreme court judges bar eligible voters from registration and consequently voting? You know why they think going by numbers Chakwera has an upper hand in terms of votes. However what turn out on the voting day is different.
Let’s wait and see on 2nd July and few days later.

The court nullified the elections because of irregularities and this time around irregularities have started with registration and that is enough reason to nullify the registration and start afresh. We can not proceed with these elections when irregularities have started showing already.
