The Malawi Electoral Commission (MEC) has said all is set for tomorrow’s (Tuesday) local government by-elections to be held in five wards.

The by-elections would be held in Khwawa Ward in Karonga South Constituency, Chibanja Ward in Mzuzu City constituency, Msikisi Ward in Mangochi Central Constituency, Central Ward in Zomba Central Constituency and Luchenza Ward in Thyolo East Constituency.

In a statement released by MEC Chairperson Maxon Mbendera made available to FaceofMalawi said all polling centres would open at 6 am and close at 6 pm.
Mbendera appealed to voters to observe polling procedures once they have voted until the results are released.

MEC Chairperson also warned Political Parties to desist from doing campaign during this period, saying the campaign period was closed on Sunday morning.

“The polling procedures have not changed. When you arrive at your Polling Station, polling staff will receive you and check your details. Only when your name is found in the voters’ register, will you be allowed to vote,” Justice Mbendera said.

“Leave the station and go home immediately after voting. Do not wait for results at the centre. Polling stations are restricted areas. So do not be tempted to hang around.”

Meanwhile Mbendela has said the body will announce the results on Wednesday.
