Kuwani wanted MEC to disqualify Mutharika and Chakwera for changing their new running mates, arguing that the move to have new running mates contravenes the February 2 Constitutional Court ruling.
Mutharika and Chakwera paired Everton Chimulirenji and Sidk Mia, respectively, in the annulled 2019 Presidential Election.
However, briefing the journalists in Blantyre, Kachale said the commission has scrutinized the complaint lodged by MMD candidate,Peter Kuwani, and their determination is that the complaint is wanting and has no legal basis.
Said Kachale: "The Commision has found that Mr. Kuwani has failed to make a valid claim to justify the nullification of the candidature of Professor Arthur Peter Mutharika and Dr. Lazarus Chakera. Therefore, Mr. Kuwani’sc complaint has been dismissed."
