Salima district commissioner (DC) Charles Mwawembe has advised newly-elected Multi-party Liaison Committee (MPLC) members in Salima South Constituency to be impartial and professional in facilitating the May 21 Tripartite Elections.
The DC was speaking on Friday at Traditional Authority (T/A) Ndindi’s headquarters when he presided over the committee members’ appointment and later opened a day-long orientation session for the new MPLC for the area.
“Malawi Electoral Commission [MEC] has entrusted MPLC to act as an electoral conflict management entity to resolve issues at local level. The work ought to be smooth and transparent,” he said.
In his remarks, T/A Ndindi said as the group’s chairperson, he will ensure that the committee delivers.
The chief further urged parties not to use young people to perpetrate violence, stressing that all misunderstandings should be resolved by the MPLC without delay.
Young Politicians Union (YPU), a Salima-based non-governmental organisation, organised the election and training session with financial assistance from MEC.
YPU is expected to facilitate similar activities in all the remaining four constituencies before the polls.
