The National Restoration Party (NAREP) has advised fellow opposition Movement for Multiparty Democracy (MMD) to avoid solving its party issues by creating A national problem.
NAREP Lusaka province spokesperson David Chikwanda says he is worried about the cost implication of holding nine by elections if Members of Parliament serving in the Patriotic Front government are expelled.
Chikwanda has therefore appealed to the MMD to serve the people of Zambia from the cost that comes with the by-elections and find a better way of resolving the issues at hand with its MPs.
Speaking to QFM, Chikwanda says it is time political parties practiced civilised politics.
He says it is sad that the MMD has decided to continue with the old kind of politics which the nation is already tired of.
Chikwanda was reacting to the threat by MMD president Nevers Mumba to expel its Parliamentarians currently serving as deputy ministers in the PF government.
