Malawi Electoral Support Network (MESN) has asked Malawi Electoral Commission (MEC) to release the results of the first ever tripartite election before embarking on the vote recounts.
MESN chairperson Steve Duwa said this today in an interview.
In his speech, Duwa said: “it’s better to release the results first before MEC start manual vote count.
“This will help Malawians to be in better position to note the difference between the results released before recount and after recounts”.
He said if this is not done, tallying of results will be meaningless as Malawians will not know what actually has been discovered in the process of vote recount.
MEC opted for manual recounts after United Democratic Front (UDF), the ruling People’s Party (PP) vehemently disputed the credibility of the election.
