Over 7.5 Million registered for upcoming 2014 Tripartite Elections

The Malawi Electoral Commission is informing the public that registration for the 2014 Tripartite Elections ended on December 18, 2013 at the end of phase 9 of the voter registration drive.

During the exercise, the Commission registered a total 7,537,548 voters nationwide. This represents 94.10 percent of the projected total for the exercise which was 8,009,734 registrants. The total registered is also 16 percent above the 6,500,759 voters in 2010.


Of the total registered voters, 3,481,365 are men representing 46.19 percent while 4,056,183 are women representing 53.81 percent.

Registration started on July 22, 2013 and covered nine phases of 14 days each.

Detailed registration figures for each centre, ward and constituency for the entire registration exercise have been uploaded on MEC website

The Commission is urging stakeholders to exercise caution with the statistics because they are based on preliminary information captured during field operations and might change during computerization exercises.
The Commission wishes to thank: all persons who presented themselves for voter registration, civil society organizations who mobilized people to register,

traditional leaders for their active participation in motivating people to register, political parties that mobilized people to register and all registration staff (District Elections Supervisory Teams, Quality Control Managers, Camera Operators, Supervisors and Clerks). Their participation contributed to make the exercise a success.
