The Constitutional Court in Blantyre is today September 29 expected to start hearing the Democratic Progressive Party’s election case.
The former ruling DPP is challenging the legality of the June 23, 2020 election after the High Court in Lilongwe ruled that four of the Malawi Electoral Commission (MEC) commissioners at the time were unlawfully appointed.
Today, the court will hear preliminary objections by the State, to which the applicants will respond.
Among others, the State, led by Attorney General Thabo Chakaka Nyirenda, say the prescribed period for the electoral challenge is over and that the commissioners were fired because of the DPP’s own disregard to rule of law.
