MEC stops voter registration in Mangochi North East

The Malawi Electoral Commission (MEC) has suspended the registration of new voters in Mangochi North East Constituency due to an injunction.

The injunction was granted by the High Court to one of the aspirants on September 18, 2020.

Speaking to YONECO FM online, Director of Media and Public Relations at MEC Sangwani Mwafulirwa said the commission will only proceed with voter verification and replacement of lost voter certificates in the area up to September 27, 2020.

“The injunction is also stopping MEC from employing presiding officers that worked in the 2019 elections, further to this it is also barring MEC from receiving nomination papers for the November 10 by elections.

“For the other 4 constituencies, Mangochi West, Phalombe North, Lilongwe Northwest, Karonga Central and Makhuwira South ward, the exercise will continue as planned,” he said.
