MEC angers PP

6

The People’s Party (PP) has expressed reservations at the decision by the Malawi Electoral Commission (MEC) to change the system of appointing its commissioners.

PP spokesperson Ken Msonda said that the move is contrary to the laws of Malawi as commissioners are appointed by the president.

“The constitution of Malawi is clear as it gives the president the mandate to appoint commissioners from various parties and what MEC has done is contrary to the law,” said Msonda.

Msonda: Calls for change.

He added that the current president should emulate what the former president Joyce Banda did of appointing representatives from various parties rather than what the late Bingu wa Mutharika did.

However, a political expert based at Chancellor College Joseph Chunga has commended what MEC has done saying it will ensure a trustworthy commission.

He added that there is need to appoint people who are professionals in certain fields rather than politicians from political parties since the latter favour their parties.
