Pre-inspection of polling materials underway in Malawi

Written by  MBC Online

Pre-inspection of polling materials in all registration centres is underway on Sunday as the Malawi Electoral Commission (MEC) earlier requested all political parties, independent candidates and civil society organisations to send their monitors and observers for the exercise in all centres.

Even before voting, inspection will be done at each polling station Even before voting, inspection will be done at each polling station

MEC said that the exercise would still proceed in the absence of monitors and observers.


"The aim of this exercise is to verify that every polling centre has received right quantity and correct materials for polling and results tabulation. Should anomalies be discovered the Commission will have ample time to correct this before polling on Tuesday, May 21, 2019," MEC said in a statement.


Malawi, on May 21, holds its sixth plurastic poll since 1994, with President Professor Arthur Peter Mutharika seeking re-election against three other challengers: Lazarus Chakwera of MCP, Saulos Chilima (UTM) and Atupele Muluzi (UDF).
