Malawian President Peter Mutharika has narrowly secured a second five-year term in office after winning the country's presidential election. The presidential and parliamentary elections took place last week, but the country's electoral commission stopped releasing results updates on Friday after receiving complaints of voting irregularities. On Saturday, the High Court ordered a partial election recount. The court lifted the injunction on Monday, and the electoral commission confirmed Mutharika's narrow victory.
