Malawi to go to polls again, after first election nullified

Published Mon Jun 22 2020 12:46:06 GMT+0000 (Coordinated Universal Time)
Voters in Malawi will return to the polls Tuesday to elect a president, after the courts nullified the results of the election held more than a year ago. The Constitutional Court on Feb. 3 ordered that the election be held again, ruling that the first results were not valid because of widespread evidence of irregularities and vote tampering in the polls held in May 2019. The court struck down the victory of incumbent President Peter Mutharika citing evidence of voting fraud. The ruling was upheld by the Malawi Supreme Court. Some 6.8 million Malawians are eligible to cast ballots at more than 5,000 polling stations across the country.
