The president also attacked the courts for the Nullification of the presidential election results which many stakeholders ndeclared not to have been free and fair.
“The Constitutional court’s nullification of the May 2019 presidential poll results was a ‘judicial d’etat’ the courts just wanted to take away my government.
” The court was wrong to nullify the election based on irregularities only. As they did not find any evidence of rigging.”
He further accuses the Malawi judiciary for declaring the former Malawi Electoral Commission, Jane Ansah as incompetent saying what the courts did pronouncing Ansah as incompetent in managing the election was ‘ridiculous.’
