Malawi opposition leader declared winner of presidential re-run

BLANTYRE (Reuters) – Malawi’s electoral commission declared opposition leader Lazarus Chakwera winner of a re-run presidential election on Saturday, a dramatic reversal of the incumbent’s discredited win in a process that has been seen as a triumph for African democracy.

Chakwera secured the required majority, with 58.57% of the vote, the electoral commission said.
