The Malawi Electoral Commission Chairperson Justice Dr. Jane Ansah SC has stepped down from her position.
Justice Ansah has just disclosed this in an exclusive interview with Malawi Broadcasting Corporation (MBC). The Malawi Electoral Commission (MEC) Chairperson said she has written the appointing authority of her decision to step aside.
Dr Ansah said her decision has not been based on pressure that was mounted by the Timothy Mtambo and the HRDC fueled demonstrations but because she respects the law.
Jane Ansah SC was largely blamed for poor leadership during the 2019 Malawi Tripartite Elections which the High Court sitting as a Constitutional Court declared the results null and void citing many irregularities to make the results credible.
