Lazarus Chakwera asks for fairness from Mec
President of the Malawi Congress Party, Lazarus Chakwera, who is also Leader of Opposition in Parliament, has asked Malawi Electoral Commission (Mec) to conduct free and fair by-elections scheduled for October 17.
Chakwera was speaking yesterday at a rally at Bangula Ground in Nsanje.
He said most Malawians have lost trust in the electoral body as indicated in an Afrobarometer survey released recently.
Chakwera added that the 2014 tripartite elections were full of irregularities.
“This is a litmus test for Mec to restore trust Malawians lost in 2014 elections. At least when the 17 October elections are credible and fair, people will have an idea of the 2019 tripartite elections,” he said
The MCP leader said Malawians need change of leadership as the current one has presided over a period of corruption.
MCP’s recent recruit, Sidik Mia, who also spoke at the rally, said Malawians are fed up with empty promises and need a government that will bring positive change.
