With 90 constituencies having been called in so far by the ECZ that are showing that our candidate Hon. Edgar Lungu is comfortably ahead in the race, I would like on behalf of the party, to re-affirm our call for calm as the Commission finalizes the results.

As a ruling party, we fully comprehend that the Zambian people want a complete set of results and a winner declared as soon as possible but then we are also cognizant of the fact that the law does exist and it must be followed so that we continue leading by example. The President is in constant touch with party representatives across the country and wishes to assure our supporters that he is satisfied with the ongoing yield the party continues to make.

Please understand that democracy is not only about numbers but also largely about patience and our party as the facilitators of this process want only to follow the law as it is stipulated in the Electoral Act.

We do not want to be like others that want to take matters in their own hands by declaring themselves winners before the votes are cast and also by showing resistance in accepting defeat before the cast votes are counted.

ECZ yesterday extended voting in 51 of the total of 6435 polling stations country-wide due to bad weather and we respect the decision of the commission.

If we can wait a day, there must be nothing wrong in waiting another hour or two in the name of democracy and political maturity.

I therefore urge our supporters and our members to continue being a shining example of peace and unity and let the ECZ under Justice Ireen Mambilima do its job, which so far they (ECZ) have shown they can do well.

Zambia has yet again shown—as observed by international monitors and local ones—that it can go through a crucial poll, even at short notice as a united front, serve for a few regrettable differences but over-all, “we have scored yet another first in the region as a peaceful country and an even greater score as a responsible ruling party.”

Let me also let you know that I have spoken to our President Hon. Lungu who remains “up-beat and confident” that the Zambian voters have made the right decision in this election and that decision is likely to continue keeping him ahead of the race, even at the end of the race.

Hon. Lungu is a God fearing man, a man who wants nothing but peace. He has won many battles during the period preceding this election and we have no doubt, his winning streak shall continue rising, given the hard work he has put into this race as a person and the support he has received from the party.

He wants to continue building health posts, expanding on the 8000kms of roads, expanding on the 4500 houses for the defence personnel and increasing bed spaces in universities and other higher institutions of learning, including economic diversification and an acceptable constitution. This is but an election… it is not the end of the world.

God Bless you all.

    • @1.1, President has sealed the victory. Out of the remaining constituencies in HH’s baseline support areas, excep Katombola with large number of registered voters, the rest have very few votes to count. The opposite is truth of EL.Lumenzi is a killer constituency just like Kapiri Mposhi, Kapoche and Mpika. By 23:00hrs Justice Mambilima is as well safe and ethical to announce the election to the Presidency of one Edgar Chagwa Lungu.

      Congrats Mr. President you have smoothly made it on first attempt and in the first round. Bravo!!!

  7. He wants to continue building health posts, expanding on the 8000kms of roads, expanding on the 4500 houses for the deference personnel and increasing bed spaces in universities and other higher institutions of learning, including economic diversification and an acceptable constitution.

    That is what he was supposed to have cinvinced the audience during the live debates but he was busy copying ehat HH was planning ,me to this ,me too that.COPY CAT!

    Sorry I don’t have any hope for Zambia under this corrupt regime.God will answer the cries of the fired nurses,the unpaid farmers,the miners who are about to lose their jobs.
    By the time they are done ,Zambia will be in billion dollar debt due to the chikule kule type of mentality.

    • Your negativity is what will drag the country backward before the issues that you have mentioned even play out. You should be ready to roll up your sleeves and work with the Government of the day, whether you support them or not. That is UBUNTU. Place the interests of the nation above your own. Be ready to provide constructive criticism when they don’t do well and be ready to encourage when they do. I am really tired of seeing all these complacent comments from bloggers who want to fold their arms and wait for the Government to fail. If EL fails, WE ALL FAIL AS A COLLECTIVE UNIT including the naysayers who would rather stand in the sidelines and not lend a hand when it would be beneficial to do so. You really need to change your attitude. We cannot move forward with that mindset.

  8. I pray that when EL assumes office won’t avenge on these brothers of ours but take it as a lesson that “umuntu mubi”. I think this is the last chance UPND has now because all Zambians have now seen how tribal and regional this party can be.

    In 2016 I won’t blame any tribe if they all decide to vote for the PF to show the Tongas how “foolish” their thinking is. It’s just not right morally. Eastern province has shown maturity and non tribal. Sinda was won by hh.

    Am still in shock and this I will tell my children when they grow up. I don’t see myself marrying a Tonga because I wouldn’t want such blood to run in my family.

  9. Looking at the remaining constituencies, it does not take lots of maths to know Edgar has gone through.

    The best HH can get from his strongholds assuming an average of 10,000 from the top 9 constituencies is 90 000 votes. This cancels the difference and leaves HH with a +30,000.

    If EL gets an average of 8000 from the last 12 constituencies, it totals 96000. And 96000 minus 30,000 is 66000.

    The worst outcome for EL, assuming he gets completely zero in HH’s strongholds is to go through by a 66000 difference.

    Lungu has done quite well having suffered setbacks from Guy Scott’s double standards, the GBM’s, the Masebos and having campaigned for just about 3.5 weeks against people who have been campaigning for three years.

  11. Congratulations EL, I voted for HH but hey I carry an NRC and there is only one Zambia, the nation has spoken. May God bless you and may you rule in wisdom. To all PF supporters, embrace and listen to constructive criticism like improving on governance, Constitution, equitable sharing of resources. The roads in NWP for example are pathetic not even a Km was done so that’s why the people there voted as they did

  12. Something is not right,the turnout was only good in Southern Province,over 50 to 60 percent in some cases.This is the rainy season and remember we are using the 2011 voters register! Anyway you ‘ve still come out short ba upnd but am sure the chief rigger is behind this that was why ba hh was saying that we believe ‘ve won this elections.

  14. My message to HH and is UPND is simple and straightforward. Win or lose no one can call you a one region party ever again.You have fought through your trials and tribulations and you have now nearly reached the mountain top.You have made a break through and Zambians can now see through the nonsensical tribal aspersions that your detractors routinely cast at you.We must respect the will of the majority if we do not make it this time.We will live to fight another day, 2016 is just about 52 weeks from now.

  15. A lot of maturity in the message, except for the occassional petty jab
    “We do not want to be like others that want to take matters in their own hands by declaring themselves winners before the votes are cast and also by showing resistance in accepting defeat before the cast votes are counted”.

    Personally, I would like to see messages such as these that rise above the pettiness that we seem to have reduced the presidency to. I am hopeful in reading this message that if EL is indeed the man of the moment, that we will get to see a lot more maturity in interactions moving forward.

  16. Sorry Mr. Chama, you don’t convince me after after the latest update we got from ECZ at 23.00hrs
    Prior to that your candidate was leading HH by 5%, now the lead has been reduced by 3%. This mean EL is up 2%.
    Now that’s what I wouldn’t call optimistic result when you have 39 constituencies to go.
    It’s just a thought Bosses.

  19. Rupiah was a ‘new comer’ as well and look what Sata did to him.History is the best teacher.Edgar Lungu’s tenure as president will be very short lived, that is if he even manages to scrape through this time.The naysayers can say what they like but clearly HH is now an unstoppable phenomena. The aspersion that UPND is only a region is now dead and buried, and you know it.

  20. UPND is still a regional and tribal party. Check the voting scores in southern province. Almost All Tongas voted for HH. The scores they got in Norther/n. Muchinga,Eastern etc are largely due to traitors like Mutati and group, who should be shown the door by MMD.
    Tonga behaviour makes them loathed in other ares as they only seem to like Lozis, and North Westerners.
    HH used cash to by voters as far as Muchinga – the chap wanted to buy himself into presidency. Mazoka never used cash . We naturally don’t like being bought. Eco alushila.

    What politics.
