It has not spared an experienced Muslim jurist Abdul Qadir’ Awda a lawyer saying that law is largely the product of the society.
Muslim Association of Malawi (MAM) has refuted allegations that the secretariat is biased to candidates contesting on the senior positions.
Speaking in an interview with Malawi Muslim official website the executive secretary of the Muslim Association of Malawi Brother Saiti Jambo asserted the electoral body’s respect of the association’s constitution making elections free, fair and transparent.
“Saying the secretariat is interested in some candidates contesting on senior positions is very unfortunate. What the Muslim community should know is that MAM is corporate body that is governed by the constitution”, Jambo said.
Jambo said MAM constitution mandates national executive members to supervise the district committees’ elections.
He further applauded the electoral body for safeguarding the constitution enacted in 1963.
“The first phase of the organization’s district and national elections conducted in 26 districts of the country has been direction focused that will formulate better and collaborative administration of the association,” said Saiti Jambo.
The Muslim Association of Malawi is conducting districts and national elections of the organization starting from 11 December and will finally elect the national executive month end of January 2011.
