UTM claims owing to Malawians; Presidential Election Case

Chilima and his lawyers

LILONGWE-(MaraviPost)-United Transformation Movement (UTM) claims that their fight for electoral justice in the just concluded case in the Constitutional Court in Lilongwe is for the betterment of Malawians.

In a statement released on Friday, the day the Court finished hearing oral submissions by the counsels representing the petitioners, respondents and the friends of the Court, UTM said it embarked on the legal battle believing that the will of Malawians must not be circumvented by nefarious designs of the few who believe that they have the right to lord over the natives.

The Party thanks all those who have been with it and provided support to it in cash and in kind throughout the time it has been challenging the May 21 elections results in court.

UTM and MCP leaders took Malawi Electoral Commission (MEC) to court following the results of the May tripartite elections. The parties claim that MEC mismanaged the polls.

Two weeks ago, the Constitutional Court slapped UTM with MK300, 000 as costs for making its Submissions late.

The money will be paid to President Peter Mutharika and MEC as first and second respondent respectively.
