Mec for fair elections


The Malawi Electoral Commission (Mec) has warned electoral supervisors in the forthcoming by-elections to refrain from partisan politics.

Mec Commissioner Richard Chapweteka sounded the warning during an interface Mec officials had with election supervisors from Nkhata Bay Central Constituency.

Chapweteka said the supervisors have been hired to facilitate smooth running of the elections, and not to assist any candidate win.


“The 2020 fresh presidential election set a very good standard on how elections are run in a democratic country. It was appreciated by many people not only in the country but also outside and stakeholders must have trust in their Mec. Therefore, we should not damage that reputation. The by-elections should be free, fair, credible and accepted by all,” Chapweteka said.

Ballots for the elections are expected to arrive in the country on Friday afternoon.

Around 17,000 people are expected to cast their vote in Nkhata Bay Central Constituency, which has 19 polling stations.


People’s Party candidate Ralph Mhone will face Symon Vuwa Kaunda of the Democratic Progressive Party.
