Chilima who is the first petitioner in the presidential elections case was speaking during a presser which was held in Lilongwe. He also called upon the losing party to accept in ruling.
“My fellow Malawians, when the decision of the court is made, I urge the losing party to accept the loss with humility knowing that justice has prevailed.
I also urge the winning party to celebrate with grace and civility knowing that there also people who mean well on the opposing side,” said Chilima
Recently, Malawi President Professor Peter Mutharika also called upon Malawians to accept court verdict.
In the presidential elections case, Chilima and Lazarus Chakwera of Malawi Congress Party (MCP) both contested on presidential seat are challenging the outcome of the 21 May Presidential elections.
