Only one winner in elections, Ansah tells Malawi presidential hopefuls

Malawi Electoral Commission (MEC) chairperson Justice Jane Ansah  has advised that there is one one winner in an elections and those who will not succeed  should know this fact.

Ansah: There will only be one winner

Ansah made the remarks  at the Chichiri International Conference Centre, widely known as Comesa Hall, in Blantyre on Monday as MEC started to receive nomination papers from presidential hopefuls in the May 21 2019 Tripartite Elections.

“This is one of the most historic moment as we prepare for the May 21 2019 Trapartite Elections,” said Ansah as the  exercise started with Malawi Congress Party (MCP) presidential candidate Lazarus Chakwera presenting his nomination forms.

“ In elections only one candidate wins. Confine yourself to issue based and clean campaign. Be a pacesetter,” said the MEC chairperson.

She advised the candifaes to “motivate eligible young people who registered to vote on the polling day.”

Ansah said the electoral body will scrutinize the  nomination papers and declare elibility after seven days.

After Chakwera, Professor John Chisi of Umodzi Party submitted his presidential nomination papers and was set to be followed by an independent presidential candidate Ms Florence Fulayi.

Professor or Profit Sir! Chisi (Darkness). You are a scam and a bunkum. You are a make-believe presidential aspirant who can’t even get votes from the graveyard. You are masquerading as a candidate when in essence you will continue to be a puppet of APM. Shame on you. Mukukhozga soni. You became a professor for answering questions correctly during assessments but your head is a gulf of underi wekhawekha. Uchindere uleke. Uwenge munyakhe ngawangulekera penepapa. Ukupera yaye navyauchindere. Mukutikazuzga mumaghanoghano chifukwa chauzukusi nakutemwa mapwevupwevu.

There may be a tight race and no winner gets the majority. Then first past the post way will be used. There may be a tie

As Malawians let’s be serious if you intend to run for Presidency seat. How can you be a President of Malawi if people do not know you at Branch level, Area/City/Township or district? That remains a puzzle to me. Mwakhuta khuta mugayiwa ndi nyemba kwanuko and now you want to waist time for the Commission and everyone in the country, please be considerate for others.
