As the day draws near for the Malawi Electoral Commission (MEC) to hold Parliamentary by-elections in three Constituency and three wards, it has been revealed that some officials from the ruling Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) are collecting voter IDs in Lilongwe City South East Constituency in exchange with party cloth.
According to information at hand, after collecting the IDs from voters, DPP officials are recording the number of each and every ID collected.
