Malawi: 1964 Legislative Assembly election results
Updated April 2007
According to Lodge et al (2002, 123):
During constitutional talks in London in September 1963 it was agreed that general elections would be held in April 1064. The new constitution provided for a Legislative Assembly of 53 members, 50 of whom would be elected on a general voters' roll on the basis on universal suffrage. The remaining three seats were reserved for European members on a special voters' roll. There was no separate provision for Asian representation, as the Nyasaland Asian Convention earlier dissolved and declared its support for the MCP [Malawi Congress Party].
|Roll||Registered||% registered||Seats||% seats|
|General||1 871 790||99.96||50||94.3|
|Total||1 872 604||100.0||53||100.0|
All of the seats were uncontested and all candidates were returned unopposed without a single poll being conducted (Lodge et al 2002, 123).
|Malawi Congress Party (MCP)||50||0||50|
|Nyasaland Constitutional Party (NCP)||0||3||3|
