Southern Region Netball League (SRNL) general secretary Annie Hanjahanja has accused Netball Association of Malawi (Nam) of delaying elections to manipulate the voters.
Nam was supposed to go to elections this month following the expiry of its three-year mandate.
But the local netball governing body has kept a tight lid on when the elections would be held.
Hanjahanja said most members in the outgoing executive committee were not sure of whether they would retain their seats hence delaying the elections.
"Since the constitution was ratified last year our superiors have been playing hide and seek when it comes to dates of elections," she said.
"They know that they will not cheat this time because teams will no longer vote. Previously it was easy for them to cheat because they were creating bogus teams which will not be the case this time."
Hanjahanja, who was floored during the previous elections in Lilongwe, said this year's elections would be a real test for the current regime.
"This time we need to convince about 46 voters unlike in the past when we had over 200 voters," she said.
Hanjahanja said she was ready to contest for a post which she was yet to disclose.
"Once Nam announces the date for the elections that's when I will also disclose the post which I will vie for," she said.
Hanjahanja said it was important to hold elections now to enable the new executive to plan for other activities such as the Presidential Netball Cup and international tournaments.
"We do not have any hidden agenda.We need to hold the elections now for the good of the sport. It is our belief that the new committee will need time to strategise on various activities," she said.
Nam president Rose Chinunda could not disclose on when Nam woul go to polls.
The Nam president also declined to give reasons why Nam was failing to hold elections.
"I can't say much on this issue. We have heard what our counterparts are saying and we will respond at an appropriate time," she said
