Voting by Malawi Police Service, Malawi Defence Forces Officers
The Malawi Electoral Commission would like to refute rumours that officers of the Malawi Police Service and the Malawi Defence Forces have already voted.
The Commission is informing all registered voters that no one has voted ahead of the polling day on May 20, 2014.
The Police and Malawi Defence Officers, just like any other registered voter, will vote on May 20, 2014. The arrangement is that on the polling day security officers and polling staff will vote first on the polling day so that they can be free to discharge their duties.
The Commission would like to urge all individuals or institutions who are spreading such rumours to stop with immediate effect.
Dated at Blantyre this 15th day of May, 2014.
