Attorney General (AG) Kalekeni Kaphale has said few irregularities that happened during the May 21 elections are not enough to lead to nullification of the presidential results.
Kaphale made the remarks yesterday during the court proceedings in the presidential election case in which United Transformation Movement (UTM) leader Saulos chilima and his counterpart Lazarus Chakwera of Malawi Congress Party wants nullification of the disputed May 21 tripartite elections.
“Our defence is that few mistakes that happened of which are acknowledged are not enough to lead to nullification of the votes. They did not materially affect the electoral process,” Kaphale said.
Kaphale continued by defending MEC official who were on the ground on the polling day to be human and that are likely to make mistakes.
“MEC officers are human beings therefore they are likely to make mistakes,” Kaphale pointed out
