PAC initiates moves to persuade Ansah to resign as MEC chair

Quasi-religious body, the Public Affairs Committee (PAC) is said to secretly initiating moves to urge embattled Malawi Electoral Commission (MEC) chairperson Jane Ansah to resign as demanded by some sections of the society.

Ansah has unequivocally stated that she will not resign unless the court rules that there were irregularities in the elections.

Nyasa Times sources say PAC officials want to talk to Ansah  this Wednesday  to resign following a spate of protests which have sometimes turned violent aimed at forcing her to step down at the pollster.

“PAC officials are trying hard to talk to her today. She is said to be in Lilongwe right now,” said our source.

PAC executive director Robert Phiri could not confirm nor deny the reports.

“We do support any efforts of dialogue on the issue because PAC wants to see to it that Malawi is on the right path,” said Phiri.

PAC efforts to talk to Ansah comes barely a day after former president Bakili Muluzi on Tuesday initiated dialogue with the organisers of the protests Human Rights Defenders Coalition (HRDC) in a bid to end the protests.

HRDC delegates to the meeting insisted Muluzi talks to Ansah to urge her step down as MEC chairperson

Her competence already at risk as indicated by admitted by MEC lawyers that tippex was indeed used and also complaints lodged, yet she ignored all those to declare her own favourite not the favourite of Malawians a winner.

Jane will resign but there are 2 or 3 things… one sge want to prove her innocence such that she thinks she did right work. Secondly her carer upon resigning will mean incompetence and put her name on black list. Thirdly religion many Christians are as bold as the lion they believe what ever is going to happen let it be.more especially born again, but not this jane ansah its strange..

Many people in the Dpp CYCLE thought Malawians are annoyed 1 or 2 days then they stop which is different this time around. I am certain that they were phoning each other that JUST KEEP QUITE UWONA ATOPA OKHA IFE TALOWA M’BOMA BASI and MA JUDGE AKUNO KU MALAWI ALI M’MANJA MWANGA. KUNYAZITSA JUDICIARY. BRAVO KENYA! REAL LAW SCHOOL AND DENIED TO BE BOUGHT LIKE GOAT.

The problem is that jane is not affected by these demos. That she will resign is doubtful. Popanga resign padutsa.

Ansah did nothing wrong. The whole campaign by HRDC is really stupid and vindictive. PAC should not waste time on this issue. Besides, Ansah can call these idiotic people’s bluff – MCP, UTM, Chakwera, Chilima, protestors and CSO activists by saying: drop the election court case if you want me to resign.
