The chairperson for Malawi Electoral Commission (MEC) Justice Jane Ansah is this morning expected to appear before the Parliament Appointments Committee which is probing the competence of Commissioners in the May 21, 2019 tripartite elections.
Today will mark the third day since the commissioners have been appearing before the committee, as the exercise began on Monday in compliance with the Constitutional Courtâs order which was delivered in the presidential elections results case ruling.
So far, some commissioners have suggested that Ansah might have used her authority to bulldoze some decisions that ultimately turned out to be in violation of laid down procedures.
However, so far the examination by the committee has highlighted the use of Tipp-Ex as a principle anomaly of the vote.
The commissioners have also been questioned on the management of auditing results, signing of results, determination of the winner and how they addressed the said 147 complaints from political parties.
