MEC re-opens centers for verification

The Malawi Electoral Commission (MEC) on Monday re-opened all centers that were covered in first phase for processing of voter transfers.

According to MEC`s Director of Media and Public Relations, Sangwani Mwafulirwa, the commission will also be issuing duplicate voter certificates to those who lost them.

“What is happening is that those that have moved to these areas they should go and process their transfers if they are others that have their voter certificates they should go and get duplicate certificates,” he said.

Mwafulirwa has however emphasized that the commission will not carry out registration for new voters.

“We are not registering any new voters, nobody who fail to register in the past should go to those centers and those that registered for the 2019 Tripartite Elections and they still have their voter certificates we don’t need them to go to the centers,” said Mwafulirwa.

The councils that are open today are Chitipa, Karonga, Salima, Dedza, Ntchewu, Blantyre District, Chikwawa, Nsanje and Blantyre City will open for three days because the exercise was closed earlier during the first phase due to political violence.
