MEC says it had a meeting with parties today and agreed that a recount to take place. Commissioner Chinkwita Phiri addressing the issue of President Joyce Banda’s proclamation, said the commission will continue with its activities as they have a stay order and will proceed to count the votes, the MEC and parties will reopen the ballot boxes and do a manual audit.

MEC will not abandon current vote counting but chose to recognize election anomalies serious enough to mount a manual audit to verify the elections after comparison with what is being captured. As at 9pm today, Mec has captured 62% of the results. The media asks the absence of MEC Chairperson at the presser. Chimkwita says Mbendera is very much around.
