HRDC says MEC Commissioners are fired

By Kondanani Chilimunthaka

The Human Rights Defenders Coalition (HRDC) says the shut down of the MEC offices symbolizes that the MEC Commissioners who were responsible for May 21, 2019 tripartite elections are all fired by the citizens and that they (HRDC) look forward to the Parliament to work towards putting in new commissioners to start preparing for the fresh presidential elections which are coming in within the next 138 days as ordered on February 3 by the High Court which was sitting as the Constitutional Court of Malawi in Lilongwe.

Speaking after leading Malawians in MEC shut down demonstrations which were organised on Thursday February 13, 2020, the HRDC leaders told the nation that the honeymoon for MEC commissioners is over and that Malawians are tired of being taken for granted by the commission hence finally firing them after a long time of pleading to have them step down honorably.

The HRDC started demonstrating against the chairperson for MEC, Dr. Jane Ansah and the Commission way back in June, 2019 after the May 21presidential election results were challenged in court by the Malawi Congress Party and UTM presidents respectively.

HRDC is accusing justice Jane Ansah of incompetence and failure to to lead her commission to conduct free and fair elections in 2019.

Meanwhile the Public Appointment Committee of Parliament has been interrogating the Commissioners for MEC to assess their competence before making its final recommendation.

The symbolic shutdown of MEC offices took place in Nkhata – Bay, Mzuzu, Lilongwe, Zomba and Blantyre and was attended by thousands of Malawians of which over 80% were the youths.
