Mec analyses polling centre complaints


The Malawi Electoral Commission (Mec) is compiling and analysing issues that came out during public hearings on proposed poling centres.

Mec Director of Media and Public Relations Sangwani Mwafulirwa said only after analysing the issues will they release the list of proposed polling centres.

For close to a month, the electoral body engaged stakeholders from the proposed 229 constituencies on issues such as realignment and establishment of registration and polling centres as well as constituency tally centres in preparation for 2025 general elections.


“We are in the process of analysing and compiling issues that were collected during the public hearings and, when the report is out, we will make all information public.

“I can’t mention the timelines now but we want to be thorough and address all issues that were raised by stakeholders,” Mwafulirwa said.

Malawi Congress Party publicity secretary Ezekiel Ching’oma and Democratic Progressive Party spokesperson Shadric Namalomba have commended Mec for the initiative.


Ching’oma said the exercise will help bringing polling centres closer to people, thereby easing the voting process.

Namalomba, on the other hand, said bringing polling centres closer to people would encourage marginalised groups such as the elderly to be taking part in voting exercises.

Malawians go to polls in September 2025.
