Date Set for Malawi's Presidential Election Re-Run

The incumbent President Peter Mutharika will square off against the main opposition leader Lazarus Chakwera on June 23 in a presidential election re-run sanctioned by the Constitutional Court in February 2020. The court annulled the 2019 election, citing "grave" and "widespread" irregularities, including the use of correction fluid on ballot papers.
