The Human Rights Defenders Coalition (HRDC) has asked Malawi Electoral Commission chairperson Jane Ansah to step down in the next 14 days.
HRDC is accusing Justice Ansah for allegedly failing to properly handle the just ended tripartite elections which were riddled with anomalies.
HRDC, has since called for the immediate resignation of Ansah, Judge of Supreme Court of Appeal, saying she and her commission are âcompromisedâ.
But the embattled Malawi Electoral commission (MEC) chairperson will not abdicate her office, according the commissionâs spokesperson Sangwani Mwafulirwa.
âThe chairperson is not resigning,â said Mwafulirwa.
He added: âIt is high time HRDC stopped behaving as self-appointed authority for public officers. There is overindulgence from this clique to call on resignation or firing of public servants unnecessarily even on matters they donât have connoisseurship on.â
HRDC chairperson Timothy Mtambo said Ansah must step down in the next two weeks (14 days) from 4th June, 2019.
