Frank Mwenifumbo has given the Malawi Electoral Commission (MEC) a 24 hour deadline for the body to produce evidence that Leonard Mwalwanda, newly elected member for Karonga Central Constituency is a registered voter.
Mwenifumbo who lost to Mwalwanda in the November 10 by-elections is challenging outcome of the polls on the basis that Mwalwanda was not a registered voter as such he was not supposed to contest.
According to Wesley Mwafulirwa lawyer representing Mwenifumbo confirmed that his client has given MEC up to close of business today to produce Mwalwanda’s voter certificate.
According to Mwafulirwa if MEC fails then his client will proceed to seek legal redress.
Meanwhile Sangwani Mwafulirwa Director of Media and Communication at MEC has confirmed receiving Mwenifumbo’s request but could not give more details.
