Mutharika Appoints New Electoral Chief Ahead of Fresh Polls

Malawi President Peter Mutharika has appointed Justice Chifundo Kachale to head the Malawi Electoral Commission following the former chairperson Jane Ansah's resignation over how she managed the 2019 election. In February, the Constitutional Court ordered a fresh presidential election after annulling the re-election of Mutharika - a ruling upheld by the Supreme Court.
