The Malawi Electoral Commission (MEC) has warned Ntchisi election supervisory team members not to be engaged in malpractices that can easily undermine the credibility of the by-election.
Speaking at a training on polling procedures and results management in the District, Commissioner Olivia Mchaju Liwewe Liwewe said that as leaders they are supposed to be impartial and non-partisan.
“If you are found engaging in malpractices, the commission will not hesitate to severe ties with you. As MEC we will be having a constant and intense monitoring and supervision,” Liwewe said.
In her closing remarks, Commissioner Liwewe said that the supervisory team should urge all staff to strictly adhere to Covid-19 measures come March 30.
The by-election in Ntchisi North is being held due to the death of the previous legislator who succumbed to Covid-19.
There are three contestants for the by election who are; Arnold Kadzanja for MCP, Kesinalakwiyo Mambeya for DPP and Maurice M’bangombe, an Independent Candidate.
