Church and Society of Central Africa Presbyterian Church (CCAP) Livingstonia Synod has feared that the credibility of fresh presidential elections is likely to be compromised following the failure of Malawi Police Service to provide security during the voter registration exercise.
According to Malawi Electoral Commission (MEC), Malawi Police Service indicated that it may not provide all officers needed for the exercise due Covid-19 operations.
However, in reacting to the development, Executive Director of the CCAP synod of Livingstonia Church and society Moses Mkandawire said the Police has to understand that in an electoral process, security plays a critical role in ensuring that equipment used by MEC is protected.
Mkandawire said the presence of security during the exercise brings trust and confidence in the system.
He then advised political parties to deploy monitors that will ensure that the whole exercise runs smoothly.
The second phase of voter registration commenced on 27 April, 2020 and will run for two weeks up to 10 May, 2020.
The councils covered Rumphi, Likoma, Dowa, Lilongwe District, Lilongwe City, Luchenza Municipality, Phalombe, Mulanje and Thyolo.
