Elections Body Proposes New Date For Malawi Presidential Polls

Malawi Electoral Commission has proposed June 23 and asked parliament to endorse the date. Earlier, the elections body had set July 2 for a new round of voting after the Constitutional Court overturned the results of 2019's election, which handed President Peter Mutharika a second term in office. However, civil rights activists and opposition parties say they will fight to the nail to ensure that the current cohort of Malawi Electoral Commission commissioners is removed from office.
