Malawian government says the annulment of the election results did not affect its functions

One of the Commissioners for the Malawi Electoral Commission, Clifford Baloyi, told the Public Appointments Committee that the 21 May Presidential Elections were free and fair and the use of tippex did not favour any political party. The Commissioner appeared before the committee on Monday where he disagreed with the ruling that the elections were marred with irregularities. The southern African nation made history recently when the Constitutional court ruled in favour of an opposition bid to cancel May's presidential election because of fraud allegations. The court ordered a fresh election within 150 days. Meanwhile the government in Malawi says the annulment of the results did not affect its functions.
