The newly formed Democratic Front, and the National Restoration Party including the Fourth Revolution have today announced the formation of a new alliance called the Orange Alliance.
NAREP leader Elias Chipimo, Democrat Front President Miles Sampa and Fourth Revolution leader Erick Chanda announced the development at a news briefing held at the NAREP Head office in Lusaka Friday morning.
The three parties have since resolved to contest the August 11 polls under the Orange Alliance.
Mr Chipimo will serve as Chairman and Erick Chanda has been appointed General Secretary and Spokesperson while Mr Sampa is the Alliance’s presidential candidate.
Mr Chanda urged Zambians to support the Alliance while Mr Chipimo stated that the Alliance is the only solution to Zambia’s problems.
Mr Sampa on the other hand explained that the coming together of the three parties is not aimed at fighting an individual but fighting the high levels of poverty in Zambia.
