Electoral Commission could be split and results might not be out by Sunday
The Electoral Commission which is appointed on partisan basis and representation could end being split and it could affect the certification and eventual results coming out. So far from 1.4 million votes counted so far, MCP President Lazarous Chakwera has a slight lead 45,000 against DPP's President Peter Mutharika while the gap between Chakwera and President Joyce Banda is around 89,000 and with Mutharika 49,000. With protests from the Peoples Party and an 8 day provided gap, the swearing in ceremony that was expected to take place this Saturday is very unlikely and the Electoral Commission has until Wednesday, 27 May, 2014 to release the results. It will be a long way to knowing what Malawians will is like. We are not putting exact figures until we have clear indications. But the winner will eventually be decided by how Professor Mutharika perfoms in Southern Region remaining votes and how he will gain in Central Region. So far the game is for DPP candidate to loose, though MCP remains in high contention.
