A civil rights lobby group, Citizen for Transformation has proposed inclusion of IT personnel from political parties into the MEC audit team for a transparent vote tabulation exercise as the fresh presidential poll looms.
More so, with less than 24 hours to go before presidential candidates submit their nomination papers, the Citizen for Transformation has yet again resurfaced with calls for Malawi Electoral Commission Chairperson Jane Ansah and the commissioners to step down or be fired.
However, the commissioners have not hinted on intentions to resign so has President Peter Mutharika indicated he will not fire them as being pressured by the CSOs and opposition parties.
Leader of the movement Timothy Mtambo says inorder for Malawi to have a free and fair Election, there must be a credible MEC Chairperson to preside over the Election.
He has since demanded the resignation and firing of the current commissioners and that there needs to be what he christens as a credible election management system.
He says the movement demands that there should be a credible process and procedure should be followed in all administrative practices.
