High Court Nullifies Chikwawa, Nsanje Parliamentary Elections

Date:

The High Court in Blantyre has nullified Parliamentary elections of Nsanje North, Chikwawa East and Nsanje Central constituencies.

Candidates for Malawi Congress Party (MCP) in the three constituencies took Malawi Electoral Commission (MEC) to court for declaring incumbent Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) legislators Francis Kasaila (Nsanje Central), Esther Mcheka Chielenje (Nsanje North) and United Democratic Front (UDF) legislator Sam Khumbanyiwa (Chikwawa East) winners of the May 21, 2019 Parliamentary polls.

Those who challenged MEC’s declaration of results are MCP candidates Foster Thipwa (Chikwawa East), Enock Chizuzu (Nsanje North) and Kafandikhale Mandevana (Nsanje Central).

Justice Sylvester Kalembera has since called for a re-run in 60 days.

The ruling comes at a time the country is celebrating 1 year anniversary since the Constitution Court nullified May 19, 2019 presidential elections.
