STATEMENT BY HER EXCELENCY DR. JOYCE BANDA ON THE OUTCOME OF THE 2014 GENERAL ELECTIONS

Fellow Malawians;I would like to first of all, thank all Malawians that took part in the just ended, first ever tripartite elections.

Despite isolated incidences of disturbances, Malawians generally embraced peace throughout the election period and exercised impeccable patience as we awaited the conclusion of the elections.

I commend all Malawians for the patience exercised during this delicate time of transition.Last evening, on 30th May 2014, the Malawi Electoral Commission announced the Presidential results of the Tripartite Elections that were held from Tuesday, 20th May to Thursday, 22nd May 2014.

I take this opportunity to sincerely congratulate the President Elect Professor Arthur Peter Mutharika and the Vice President Elect Mr. Saulos Klaus Chilima on their victory in an election that was closely contested.

I wish the President Elect and the Vice President Elect every success as they take up the mantle of leadership for the nation of Malawi.

It is my prayer that the new President and his Government will successfully guide our nation to greater heights of prosperity

I would like to thank all Malawians for the support rendered to me and my government during my term in office as President of this great Republic.It has been an honor and privilege to serve my country, Malawi, and more so as the country’s first female president.

During my term, significant reforms that aimed at taking the nation to the right development trajectory were implemented, and I appreciate the support and encouragement that Malawians and all other well wishers gave me during these reforms

As I leave office today, I am happy that there are visible positive outcomes of these reforms in the macro economy, in governance and observance of human rights, in food security, in women’s empowerment, in rural development and international relations to mention but a few.

I am happy that the country is at a better place than was the case when I assumed office in 2012.
I therefore wish to take this opportunity, to urge all Malawians to support the newly elected President Professor Mutharika and his Government as they take on this foundation of progress and endeavor to develop Malawi even further.

In conclusion, while these elections have been tense, I would like to urge all Malawians to move forward as one nation, to remain united, to uphold the rule of law, and continue being peaceful and calm as we head into the next fifty years of Malawi’s future.

May God continue to protect and bless our Nation, Mother Malawi.

I thank you for your attention

President Dr Joyce Banda
Republic of Malawi


There is some hope for Africa. A clear indicator of maturity and civilization.

Peter Mutharika losing badly to the opposition in the re-run of last year's presidential election.
Malawian Opposition didn't boycott election after annulment of the first vote.
They marshaled their base and they are headed for a big win.

Good lesson for the region. Hopefully others are learning the lessons.

Malawi's ruling party, Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) appeals to the Electoral Commission to declare no winner in Tuesday's presidential elections rerun, claiming their monitors were intimidated.

Malawi Opposition Leader Wins Fresh Elections with Landslide Victory
Quote:
...the leader of the opposition Malawi Congress Party (MCP), Lazarus Chakwera, won the country’s historic presidential election rerun, which came after the nullification of last year’s polls that gave President Peter Mutharika his second term.

Quote:
At a news conference earlier in the day in Blantyre, Mutharika said the June 23 poll is worst election in the country’s history.
Mutharika, joined by his running mate, Atupele Muluzi, leader of the opposition United Democratic Front, told reporters the polls were marred by irregularities.
In short, our monitors were beaten, hacked and intimidated so that they should not participate in voting process,” Mutharika said. “Many tally sheets do not have signatures, as monitors were also in hospital and could not present to endorse the results.”

Quote:
“Much as I find this election unacceptable, but for the sake of peace, I still love our country, which is larger than all of us,” he said. “I therefore ask all Malawians to be peaceful with results if announced.”


Quote:
However, various election observers, including the Malawi Human Rights Commission, have described the elections as free, fair and credible.


Quote:
Chakwera and his running mate, Saulos Chilima, leader of opposition United Transformation Movement, were sworn in Sunday at Bingu International Convention Centre in the capital, Lilongwe.

"I... do solemnly swear that I will well and truly perform the functions of the high office of the president of the Republic of Malawi and that I will preserve and defend the constitution," Chakwera proclaimed.

I was rooting for this president... It's too early to start attracting this kind of negative criticism.

Anger after Malawi President Chakwera appoints family members to cabinet

Quote:
Malawi's new President Lazarus Chakwera has named relatives as ministers in his new cabinet, sparking criticism.
The president criticised his predecessor for being nepotistic and filling his cabinet with people from his region.

Another criticism of President Chakwera's cabinet is that it comprises more than 70% of people from the central region which happens to be his political stronghold.

Quote:
On Wednesday night the new president announced a 31-member cabinet that included six figures who are related to each other, although not to the president.

Quote:
The new labour and health ministers are brother and sister, while the incoming information minister is the sister-in-law of the new deputy agriculture minister.
Chakwera's former running mate in the 2019 elections, Sidik Mia, will serve as the transport minister while his wife will be the deputy minister for lands.


The only saving grace is that the nominated Justice Minister refused to take up the job.
Quote:
President Chakwera's previous appointee in the justice ministry lawyer Modercai Msiska refused to take up the position saying it would look like a reward for representing him in court during the case that nullified President Peter Mutharika's election win.
