The ruling Patriotic Front has pledged to conduct violence free campaigns in the Lubansenshi Parliamentary by-election slated for September 24th.
PF Lubansenshi Deputy Campaign Manager Frank Bwalya says his party has resolved to ensure its cadres do not engage in any conduct that is likely to breach the peace and order in the area.
Father Bwalya has told Qfm News by telephone from Lubansenshi that his party does not want to give the opposition any reason to complain when they lose the by-election.
He notes that the campaigns which kicked off on Wednesday, 26th August have started on a peaceful note and that he believes this will continue.
Father Bwalya says his confidence is based on how opposition political party members and members of the ruling PF were able to interact during the filing of nominations.
He says UPND vice president for administration Geoffrey Mwamba hugged him and also hugged his opponent in the impending Kasama Central Parliamentary by-election, Kelvin Sampa during the filing of nominations for the Lubansenshi Parliamentary by-election.
Father Bwalya states that this is how it should be.
