MEC Chief Elections Officer Willie Kalonga confirmed of the development in an interview.
In his speech, KalongaÂ said the body is currently waiting an advice from the court on what to do as it was geared to conduct vote recount for the Constituency.
Vote recount was scheduled to start at 8:30am atÂ MEC warehouses located at Central Government Stores building, off-Paul Kagame Highway in Lilongwe.
