The High Court in Blantyre has set 28th October as date it will deliver its verdict on whether or not electoral body, Malawi Electoral Commission (MEC) should administer by-elections in Mangochi north east constituency.
In the 2019 polls in Mangochi North East, United Democratic Frontâ€™s Idi Kalosi was declared winner with 8,980 of the 23,394 valid votes cast.
However, independent candidate, Martin Sekati who got 7,053 votes challenged the result in court saying the election was marred by irregularities.
The court in its ruling said MEC failed to conduct free and fair elections hence should hold a rerun, an order that was challenged and its ruling will now be in the next four weeks
