United Transformation Movement (UTM) Saulos Chilima Has urged President Peter Mutharika to fire Malawi Electoral Commission (MEC) commissioners for their incompetence during the just nullified May 21, 2019 presidential elections.
Chilima who is also the state vice president has urged Mutharika to make sure that the Commissioners are held accountable for their actions.
According to Chilima Public Appointments Committee (PAC) of Parliament has made things way easier for recommending that they should be fired.
âPAC has made a recommendation for them to get fired, that is good but they must also be held accountable,â Chilima said.
He further added that firing the commissioner will be a significant that the nation is moving on for it is not on to be stuck with bunch of the same commissioners.
âI donât expect that we will be stuck with the same commissioners for long, we can move on with a new commission,â said Chilima.
He continued; âI would urge the president to release them so that we move on, it is an opportunityâ
He added that if the president does not fire them âthatâs a recipe for unrestâ
