Senior Counsel Mordecai Msisha has concluded his submission for MCP President Dr. Lazarus Chakwera, who is the 2nd Petitioner in the presidential election case at the Constitutional Court.

In his closing remarks, he articulated the remedies he seeks the court to make to rectify the massive irregularities committed by MEC.

He told the court that as Counsel for Dr. Chakwera, he holds that the court has jurisdiction to administer what Section 41 of the Constitution describes as “an effective remedy” to address MEC’s violations of the political rights of Malawian voters whose will was defeated by either incompetence or fraud, or both.

According to Msisha, though it is for the Court to decide what an effective remedy is, the Court should not only declare the election of APM as null and void, but also consider declaring Dr. Chakwera the rightful winner of the 2019 elections if the Court is persuaded by evidence to that effect.

The case has since adjourned to 1:30 pm and not 2 pm as usual.
