MCP, UTM supporters hold joint celebrations


Malawi Congress Party (MCP) and UTM supporters Wednesday joined forces as they thronged the streets of Blantyre to celebrate the Constitutional Court’s judgement which went in favour of the two parties’ leaders Lazarus Chakwera and Saulos Chilima.

The march was largely peaceful and attracted a huge crowd. Supporters for the two parties also held similar celebrations separately on Tuesday in major cities of the country.

The court, sitting in Lilongwe, on Monday nullified the May 21 presidential election results saying they did not reflect the will of Malawians.


A panel of five High Court judges, led by Justice Healey Potani, called for fresh presidential election within 150 days from February 3 2020.

Chakwera and Chilima were the petitioners in the case whereas President Peter Mutharika and Malawi Electoral Commission were the respondents in the case.

Mutharika has hinted that he will appeal at the Supreme Court against the ruling.
