Reflecting on the 20 May 2014, Tripartite election results

The Centre for Human Rights and Rehabilitation (CHRR) is greatly disturbed at the ruling by High Court Judge Kenyatta Nyirenda to give Malawi Electoral Commission a go ahead to announce the irregularities and discrepancies ridden May 20 elections results and the subsequent announcement of the results by the MEC. As CHRR, we wonder if such a ruling was made to simply satisfy the law or to advance the credibility of the results. Otherwise, given the opportunity to opt between satisfying the electoral law by simply announcing the results and delivering credible results in a democratic dispensation like Malawi’s, we would not hesitate to opt for the latter.


We at Centre for Human Rights and Rehabilitation (CHRR) and Centre for Development of People (CEDEP) observe with sadness the events that characterized yesterday following Malawi Electoral Commission’s decision to effect a physical voting audit of not only the Presidential election but also Parliamentarian and Local government.
