The presidential elections in Malawi, which had to be redone by order of the judge, produced another winner. Opposition candidate Lazarus Chakwera has succeeded in defeating incumbent President Peter Mutharika. Observers speak of a historic event.

Last May’s elections were narrowly won by President Mutharika, sparking months and sometimes violent protests. Oppositionists demanded that the polls be redone because of alleged fraud.

In February, the Malawi Constitutional Court declared the result invalid. According to the court, numerous irregularities were discovered. For example, Tipp-Ex was used to fake votes.

Large majority

The new edition of the election was held last Tuesday. Opposition leader Chakwera won more than 58% of the vote, says the electoral committee. The participation was 64%.

In response, Chakwera speaks of a victory for democracy. His supporters took to the streets in the capital Lilongwe.

Rare

Irregularities in elections in African countries were reported more frequently. However, the result is rarely canceled.

The only time that happened before in Africa was in Kenya in 2017. Presidential elections were repeated, but the result has not changed: President Kenyatta’s re-election has been maintained.
