Unofficial results show that has won the Parliamentary seat with 9, 898 votes, seconded by independent candidate Martin Nyengo, who got 8, 961 and Duncan Cassim of UTM who polled 158.
Mangochi North East Constituency had 18 polling centres with a total number of 31, 501 registered voters.
“On behalf of the United Democratic Front (UDF) leadership and the entire membership we salute the teamwork and dedication in achieving this well deserved win.
“The victory is a clear sign of the trust that the people in the constituency has in Hon Kalosi as a popular local leader and the UDF as the party of choice,”reads in part the statement.
The seat fell vacant following the nullification of the 2019 Parliamentary results for the Constituency by the High Court in Blantyre which subsequently ordered a fresh election citing gross irregularities in the previous one.
