President-elect Peter Mutharika will be sworn in tomorrow morning at the Malawi High Court.
The leader of the Democratic Progressive Party obtained 36.4% of the vote, the electoral commission announced.
Outgoing president Joyce Banda has alleged the vote was rigged.
The Malawi Electoral Commission (MEC) had asked for a 30-day extension to announce the results so that a recount could be carried out.
However, the High Court refused to delay the release of results. “The law is clear, there is no extension,” judge Kenyatta Nyirenda said.
