MEC engages stakeholders on 2025 elections

Chairperson for the Malawi Electoral Commission, Justice Chifundo Kachale, says it is crucial for everyone to be familiar with the new electoral laws as the country prepares for the 2025 tripartite elections.

Kachale was speaking during an engagement with electoral stakeholders at Mudzi Owala in Ntcheu District.

Chief Education Officer for Ntcheu District, Veronica Nyaka, who represented the District Commissioner, concurred with Kachale, stressing that familiarising with the new laws would help ensure fair and credible elections.

Representatives of different political parties and the clergy are among those attending the MEC interface.

And in Karonga, MEC Commissioner Anthony Mukumbwa has urged Chiefs, CSOs and other influencers to help spread the message on the changes, for voters to be aware and prepare well for the 2025 general elections.

“Using the new electoral laws which are contained in the Presidential, Parliamentary and Local Government Elections Act of 2023, we will conduct a credible, peaceful election in 2025 whereby no one will be going to courts to challenge the results,” Mukumbwa said.

According to the new provisions, registration for the 2025 elections, slated to begin in September 2024, will only be based on National Identity Cards.
