Opinion polls: Chakwera to win Malawi fresh presidential election

A survey conducted by  Malawi’s Institute of Public Opinion Research (Ipor)  indicates that Malawi Congress Party (MCP) president Lazarus Chakwera will win the court-sanctioned  fresh presidential election by majority  votes  required to form the next government.

Ipor national investigator Dr Boniface Dulani presented the State of Governance report in Blantyre on Monday.

The Ipor survey indicate that Malawians feel  Chakwera, who quit the pulpit as head of Malawi Assemblies of God in 2013 to join frontline politics,  and leads a nine political parties in an electoral ticket branded Tonse Alliance, is the most qualified candidate to govern Malawi.

According to Ipor, the survey found that 51 percent of Malawians will vote for Chakwera on MCP ticket  followed by  DPP/UDF Alliance candidate incumbent Presdient  Peter Mutharika at 33 percent.

Mbakuwaku Movement for Democracy (MMD)  presidential candidate Peter Kuwani  is expected to take third place with 0.2 percent of the votes.

Ten percent of the respondents were undecided and four percent declined to say who they would vote for.

The survey findings further say Chakwera has the best chance of winning the forthcoming presidential election.

The survey further reveals that the DPP is the most corrupt and violent party in the country.

And 85 percent of Malawians feel the country’s economy is on a downward spiral while 14 percent believe the economy is performing well.

Malawians feel that government has failed to address crucial issues affecting them such as food security.

Chakwera, who alongside his running mate Saulos Chilima successfully petitioned the High Court of Malawi sitting as the Constitutional Court to nullify last year’s election,  contends that God has given Malawians the fresh election to restore every voter’s power to bring change and enjoy their rights.

Malawi politics is funny right now. The hegemony of opinion on social media and youths, like some kind of zeitgeist fashion. Apparently you should be supporting Tonse alliance or your an idiot. What the alliance is offering doesn’t matter neither is the contributions Munthalika admin has done in the last 5 years. No critical analysis of alliance promosed economic framework. Why would anyone vote for advancement of neoclassical capitalist framework is beyond me. Why would you want to throw away the signature fisp that Bingu championed and fight tooth and nail for some no detailed fertilizer fixed price reduction. The… Read more »

Ask Hilary Clinton she will tell you. Trump was not considered, but he beat her . The whole world expected Hilary to win, exit pols said so but it never. Ask Theresa May, exist polls said she will win, but failed miserably. Exit polls should be done in deep villages.

Technically we should make sure that people’s votes are safeguarded. Votes should be counted and announced at all polling centres. Again the results should be summarised and announced at district level for the DCs take them to national tally centre. That’s the way to go………please!
