Malawi President Professor Arthur Peter Mutharika has accepted the resignation of Justice Dr. Jane Ansah as Malawi Electoral Commission (MEC) chairperson.
Presidential Press Secretary, Mgeme Kalilani confirmed the development on Friday in an interview with state news agency.
Justice Dr. Ansah on Thursday told Malawi Broadcasting Corporation (MBC) that she will be leaving the commission as a happy person.
Dr. Ansah further said her decision to step aside has not been based on pressure that was mounted by the Human Rights Defenders Coalition (HRDC) but because she respects the law.
Malawi will hold fresh presidential elections on June 23 following the nullification of May 2019 Presidential elections.
