Press Release
WASHINGTON – Today, Rep. Karen Bass (D-Calif.), Chair of the House Foreign Affairs Subcommittee on Africa, Global Health, Global Human Rights and International Organizations issued the following statement marking national elections in Malawi.

"Despite socio-political and economic challenges, Malawi is a great example of democracy on the continent. I am hopeful that their presidential and parliamentary electoral results will reflect the will of the people, and I urge young people to be politically active and let their voices be heard through the power of the vote. Malawi is a shining example of how a country can transfer from a dictatorial rule to one of peace, but it must continue to improve its good governance to increase the development of its institutions."
