UNIP in Luapula to go it alone in by-elections

Headlines UNIP in Luapula to go it alone in by-elections

UNIP in Luapula says it will go it alone in any by-election that may arise in the province in future.

UNIP provincial chairperson Mwansa Musunte said during the party’s extra-ordinary
provincial council in Mansa that the former ruling party will not contest any election on the United Democratic Alliance, UDA, ticket to which it is a member.

Mr Musunte said UDA was formed for the purpose of winning the 2006 general elections
which the alliance however lost to the ruling MMD.

He said as such every party in the alliance would remain autonomous and that UNIP
will continue with its programmes of strengthening itself.

Reacting to UDA President Hakainde Hichilema’s displeasure against UNIP contesting
the Kapoche by -lection disregarding the UDA alliance, Mr Musunte said the fact the
party decided to field its own candidate does not mean that it has pulled out of the

He said the party will concentrate on building its popularity countrywide by contesting by contesting elections on its own ticket.

He urged the UNIP membership at all levels to contest any election on the party’s ticket.

And Mr Musunte has declared that UNIP remains strong in the province and its structures are intact at all levels.

And Luapula province UNIP membership has implored the government to put in place a
new republican constitution before 2008.

At the end of the party’s provincial council meeting in Mansa, members resolved
that the new constitution should be adopted through a constituent assembly and not
through the Indaba.


  1. Don’t you get it!!!! UNIP will never win any election, its glory day are gone so you better stick to UDA thats where your short survival is assured at least.

  2. UNIP is just there to make Zambia a multi-Party state but to form any govt any more. UNIP was a party for independence struggle but now we need a party in govt with vision for the Zambians. Right now i think PF has the vision for the poor Zambians.Let every one get in to the Life boat-PF.
