Malawi court rejects Banda's bid to halt result publication

Malawi President Joyce Banda speaks during a press conference in the capital Lilongwe, on May 22, 2014Blantyre (Malawi) (AFP) – Malawi’s high court has thrown out President Joyce Banda’s application to block the release of election results, three days after the chaotic vote began. Banda’s People’s Party (PP) had alleged that “figures that are coming from the districts tally centres are not matching with the number of voters from different polling stations because the system has been hacked,” according to a court affidavit. Banda on Thursday claimed “serious irregularities” in this week’s highly charged election, saying people had voted multiple times, ballots had been tampered with, presiding officers arrested, and the computerised voter counting system had collapsed. The country’s electoral commission chief Maxon Mbendera earlier rebuffed Banda’s request for an audit of the votes.
