Tax-funded Malawi Broadcasting Corporation (MBC) will now start airing a 30 minute programme featuring all the seven presidential contestants in
the watershed May 21 2019 tripartite elections.
The programmes will be aired both on MBC Radio Radio and Television from Monday to Sundays.
A statement released by MEC reveals that the commission wrote all aspiring presidential candidates on 1st March, 2019 requesting them to submit prerecorded three minute campaign messages for radio and television by 15th March, 2019.
Unfortunately, only three parties namely Tikonze Peoples Movement, Mbakuwaku Movement for Development and Umodzi Party have submitted their messages despite several reminders by the Commission secretariat to the Secretaries General of the parties.
Meanwhile, the public broadcaster has developed a schedule for airing the messages.
