Late openings and delivery of ballot papers disrupted voting in one percent of the more than 4,000 centres on Tuesday. In the southern African nation’s commercial capital Blantyre voting was again delayed on Wednesday because ballot papers had not been printed on time, according to an AFP correspondent. Election chief Maxon Mbendera acknowledged it was an “embarrassing situation”, but denied any intention to disenfranchise individuals.
