The Malawi Electoral Commission(MEC) says it is expected to announce winners of Tuesday’s By-elections by the close of business Wednesday.
MEC conducted the polls in Karonga Central, Lilongwe North-West and Makhuwira South Ward in Chikwawa district.
Speaking to Timveni, MEC spokesperson Sangwani Mwafulirwa said once all results have reached the main tally center in Lilongwe and verified, the commission will announce the victors.
Mwafulirwa said so far, the electoral body has received results for Lilongwe North West constituency.
He hailed the by-elections for having a good turnout as compared to past by-elections.
MEC has since called for peace and patience as the general public awaits official results.
In his remarks, Jones Chiponda, who was a monitor for an independent candidate in the Lilongwe North-West by-election, says the poll has been held in a peaceful manner.
