Malawi polls within 6 months or else?
Malawi Electoral Support Network has said it is disappointed that a date for local government polls has not yet been announced. The organisation hinted that they may sue the government at a recent conference, shortly before the Malawi Electoral Commission was reopened after being shut down by the president for several months. They have also called for the elections to be financed in the 2011-2012 national budget. The polls were originally scheduled for April 2011 but were unable to proceed as the Malawi Electoral Commission was only opened on 1 April.
