The Malawi Electoral Commission (MEC) has postponed a press briefing which was slated to take place today at 2pm.
MEC Chairperson Dr Chifundo Kachale confirmed of the development in an interview with the press.
According to Kachale, the briefing has been canceled due to circumstances ‘beyond their control.’
MEC was scheduled to give updates regarding the court sanction by-elections in Chikwawa and Nsanje.
Two weeks ago the High Court in Blantyre nullified parliamentary elections results for Nsanje North, Chikwawa East and Nsanje Central Constituencies.
The court then ordered for fresh elections to be held within 60 days.
Malawi Congress Party parliamentary candidates Foster Thipiwa of Chikwawa East, Enock Chizuzu of Nsanje North and Kafandikhale Mandevana of Nsanje Central, challenged May 21 2019 election results on grounds that they were marred by irregularities.
Malawi Electoral Commission (MEC) declared Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) legislators Francis Kasaila of Nsanje Central, Esther Mcheka Chilenje of Nsanje North and United Democratic Front (UDF) legislator Sam Khumbanyiwa of Chikwawa East) as winners.
