Parliament sets June 23 date for Malawi fresh elections, govt protest

Malawi Parliament has finally set June 23  2020 as the date for the fresh presidential elections, amid protests from the government side.

The opposition members of Parliament supported motion of June 23 polling date

Alliance for Democracy (Aford) Mzimba North MP Yeremia Chihana  moved the motion setting poll date  which wasseconded by Lilongwe Mpenu MP, Eisenhower Mkaka of Malawi Congress Party (MCP).

However, the House erupted in chaos when the House  adopted a motion by Chitipa East Parliamentarian Kezzie Msukwa to gazette the  June 23 date for the fresh election.

MPs  from the government benches shouted in protest against the decision.

The governing Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) MPs chased First Deputy Speaker of Parliament Madalitso Kazombo out of the House.

Kazombo suspended the meeting.

Malawi is heading for the fresh presidential election after both the Constitutional Court on February 3 and Supreme Court of Appeal on May 8 2020 found that the May 21 2019 elections had serious irregularities.

Oh boy!! This will be a hell of election. How will the be done in such a short time? Here in Malawi where everything takes so long to be done? It would have been better to set a date that works for the logistics (printing ballots etc) that just setting a date. The government by the judges!

Nota: Pls do not call me DPPist. I am fact-ist (ie I only see facts. Full stop).
