Malawi Congress Party (MCP) President Dr. Lazaraus Chakwera’s lawyer Modercai Msiska has finished cross examining Sam Alfandika, Malawi Electoral Commission (MEC) Chief Elections Officer.
Speaking during cross examination, Alfandika told the court that the commission gave instructions to elections auditors DBO to approve tally sheets that were not signed for by party monitors and those manually altered during the May 21 elections.
Alfandika acknowledged, however, that the auditors were reporting to UNDP who hired them.
The MEC CEO also contradicted MEC chair Jane Ansah on the source of correction fluid tippex which was used to alter election results on tally sheets.
The court also allowed MCP lawyers to play an interview clip which Malawi Electoral Commission (MEC) chairperson Justice Jane Ansah had with the media.
The clip has revealed that MEC commissioners knew before polling started that tippex was supplied to polling centers.
Alfandika has since admitted that tippex was supplied to polling centres before polling began.
