The Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) candidate in the Nkhata Bay Central Constituency parliamentary fresh elections, Symon Vuwa Kaunda is leading, according to unofficial results.
According to unofficial results from 29 polling stations, Kaunda has amassed 5, 439 votes against People’s Party (PP) candidate Ralph Mhone who has gotten his share of 5, 223 votes.
Kaunda who won the 2019 parliamentary elections, was stripped of his position after People’s Party candidate Ralph Mhone filed a complaint on the outcome of the polls.
According to Mhone, the elections were not free and fair accusing Kaunda of rigging.
The high court in Blantyre, then nullified the parliamentary seat of Kaunda following the evidence the defense team presented before the court.
The court then ordered for fresh polls in the constituency.
Later, Kaunda filed aÂ complaint to African Court following the nullification of his election, which also rebuffed him.
The Malawi Electoral Commission (MEC) is expected to announce the official results very soon.
