Special Assistant to the President for Press and Public Relations Amos Chanda says there is no need for President Edgar Lungu to hold a press conference on how he is addressing current challenges facing the country.
There have been calls from various stakeholders for President Lungu to hold a press conference to indicate how he will bring back the country’s economy on track.
But Mr. Chanda says the Head of State in his speech to Parliament highlighted how his government is handling the current situation in the country.
Mr. Chanda has told QFM News in an interview that the measures President Lungu highlighted in his speech are the measures government is putting in place and will be supported by the budget speech to be presented to Parliament today by Finance Minister Alexander Chikwanda.
He says there is nothing more President Lungu can say at a press conference that was not included in his parliamentary speech.
The Presidential press Aide has however, indicated that should need arise; State House will not hesitate to call for a press conference.
