Malawi: Malawi tripartite polls in 2014; opposition accuses government of violating law | The Maravi Post
Malawi will for the first time since the re-introduction of multiparty politics in 1994 hold tripartite elections in 2014, a decision the country’s opposition said was a violation of the constitution. The government announcement follows the cancellation of Local Government Elections that were scheduled to be held this year.
