The United Nations Development Programme has announced a donor commitment of 10 million US dollars towards the country’s electoral process for 2025.

The Assistant Secretary General for the UN, who is also the Regional Director for the UNDP Regional Bureau for Africa, Ahunna Eziakonwa, was speaking in Blantyre after holding discussions with President Dr. Lazarus Chakwera at Sanjika Palace.

Eziakonwa said through the basket fund it is managing, donors have already shown commitment to support Malawi.

According to Eziakonwa, the funds committed exceed the original target of 8.5 million US dollars.

Among others, it is expected that the money will meet the deficit in the K59 billion that the government has earmarked for the 2025 elections.
