Malawi president to appeal court decision overturning his 2019 poll victory

Malawian President Peter Mutharika plans to challenge a court decision overturning his 2019 poll victory, his spokesman said on Wednesday, in a move that could spark fresh opposition protests.


After six months of hearings that gripped the southern African country, five top judges on Monday ruled that Mutharika was not duly elected, citing massive and widespread irregularities including the use of correction fluid on results sheets.

He did not say when Mutharika would bring the challenge, but the 79-year-old president has up to six weeks to appeal.
