The Malawi leader Peter Mutharika will appoint commissioners for Malawi Electoral Commission (MEC) in two weeks time.

Confirming the development, press secretary Mgeme Kalirani said Mutharika is finalising the process and soon the electoral body is to have new commissioners.

Mutharika to appoint the commissioners soon.

“The process involves a lot, for instance the intelligence bureau is supposed to scrutinize the names whether they once committed a crime because the law blocks such people from being commissioners,” said Kalirani.

Following the expiry of the terms for MEC commissioners on May 18, the Malawi Electoral Support Network (MESN) has been pressing government to appoint a new team to lead the electoral body towards the 2019 general elections.

MESN argued that the delay will affect prepations for the seventh general elections since Malawi adopted democratic type of government.
