The United Nations (UN) General Secretary António Guterres has called upon Malawians to uphold the rule of law as the country waits constitution court ruling on the high profile presidential elections case on Monday.
The UN Chief Guterres made the appeal on Friday through his spokesperson Stephane Dujarric. He said Malawians should continue upholding the rule of law and peace as they wait for judgement.
“The Secretary-General calls on the Malawian stakeholders to continue upholding the rule of law and promoting peace, unity and stability in the larger interest of the people,” said Dujarric in a brief statement posted on UN official website.
He also called upon political parties leaders in the country to continue sending message of peace to their supporters.
Meanwhile, security agencies in the country have strengthened security in major cities of the country ahead of the Monday ruling.
Oppositions Malawi Congress Party (MCP) and UTM Party filed a petition to court seeking the nullification of 21 May 2019 Presidential elections.
