A legal representative for the opposition parties in Malawi has said they intend to examine bank accounts of the country’s electoral staff to track possible bribe.
The lead legal counsel for the Malawi Congress Party and United Transformation Movement, Mordecai Msiska, spoke to journalists on Wednesday.
“As for the bank accounts, we need to know whether any MEC (Malawi Electoral Commission) staff had had transactions in their accounts that are unusual, that could not be explained in terms of inflows of funds”, he said.
On Wednesday, Malawi’s opposition filed an appeal at the country’s Constitutional Court in the capital Lilongwe, requesting that the presidential election be annuled. The court will rule on these applications on Thursday.
Police officers were deployed to stand guard at the court’s headquarters as they sit on the case.
Following the announcement of disputed presidential results held in Malawi in May, there have been cases of violent protests.
