June 23 Set for Fresh presidential Polls

Date:

Legal Affairs Committee of Parliament has agreed that Malawi Electoral Commission (MEC) should continue working on preparations of presidential elections which will be held on June 23.

Chairperson for the committee Kezzie Msukwa has said they will not completely follow the advice of the Attorney General to have genuine election as, he said, the AG is compromised in his stand, having represented MEC in the court case in which the Constitutional Court nullified the presidential poll.

On the bills that President Peter Mutharika rejected, Msukwa said the meeting has agreed that only pieces of the legislation guiding a possible run-off and election date should be tabled and that the rest should be tabled after elections when the country will be politically stable.

Earlier, Ansah proposed that the country should go to polls on July 2, 2020 following an order by the constitutional Court which ordered that the fresh polls should be done within the period of 150 days.
