The United Nations (UN) Emergency Relief coordinator and Under-Secretary-General for Humanitarian Affairs Mark Lowcock on Friday advised Malawi to once again conduct free, fair and credible elections. Malawi is preparing for the May 21 Tripartite Elections that will decide the democratic future of the country.
Said Lowcock: “This is an election year for Malawi, I believe Malawi will remain a model in conducting free, fair and peaceful elections in this African region. Elections are always contested but that should be done in a peaceful manner.
“Malawi is among the first countries in Africa to manage peaceful transition of power from one ruling government to another after elections, so it is our expectation that this will continue.”
