General elections were held in Malawi on 20 May 2014. They were Malawi’s first tripartite elections, making it the first time the people of Malawi voted for their local governments, members of parliament and president in a single election.

The Malawi Electoral Support Network (MESN) participated in the elections.

MESN had a Parallel Voter Tabulation (PVT) and also did a Long Term Observation (LTO). We also had observers and monitors in the centre across Malawi.
