Mtambo has also given Mutharika a week to appoint new Malawi Electoral Commission (MEC) commissioners to handle the forthcoming presidential elections on May 19, 2020.
According to Mtambo, if their need is not met, they will mobilize 5 million Malawians to take into the streets to demonstrate to State House to force him sign the bills into law.
