The election was called after the Nyasaland Party and Social Democratic Party joined the People's Freedom Party in a vote of no confidence in the government of Deacon Jacobs forcing the Premier to hold a snap election.
The election resulted in a landslide victory for the Nyasaland Party who won almost 60 per cent of the popular vote and 42 of the Assembly's 59 seats. The extent of the Nyasaland Party landslide is exemplified by party leader Tamandani Morrison winning the seat of Thyolo Central with 51 per cent of the vote despite the party having only won 1 per cent of the vote in the seat at the previous election.
The United Federal Party was decisively defeated losing all but 6 of their seats and with incumbent Premier Deacon Jacobs losing his own seat to the Nyasaland Party candidate.
