The Patriotic Front (PF) leader, Michael Sata has maintained that the pact has not collapsed adding that it is still in existence.
Mr Sata said that the PF has not yet received any formal letter indication of the UPND’s withdrawal from the pact. He maintained that his party will comment on UPND’s purported decision to break away from the pact after it receives official notification from its partner.
“I don’t comment on gossip, I also just heard from the news that UPND has decided to break away but we have not received official documentation to that effect,” Mr Sata said.
The outspoken opposition leader also refused to comment on allegations by the UPND that the pact failed because of his party.
