CCZ encourages parties to form alliances

General News CCZ encourages parties to form alliances

ccz
THE Christian Coalition of Zambia (CCZ) is in support of political parties forming alliances because apparently no single political party can attain 50-percent-plus-one vote.

In a statement, CCZ president Godwin Musonda said to reduce the fragmented number of presidential candidates, which splits the vote unnecessarily, major political parties must form alliances with smaller parties.

And Bishop Musonda also said the MMD must resolve differences for the best interest of the party, and that members must respect the democratically elected leadership of Nevers Mumba.

Bishop Musonda said MMD must use courtesy and offer an olive branch to those with divergent views and unite the party before elections.

He also said the media must be factual and unbiased when covering political parties and their candidates in the forthcoming elections.

Bishop Musonda said the Electoral Commission of Zambia should play its role and ensure impartiality during the August 11 polls.

He said CCZ is saddened with the incident that took place last week in Bweengwa, where journalists and government officials were attacked by suspected UPND cadres when President Lungu visited the area.

“Political parties must conduct non-violent political campaigns, and as such, CCZ has asked all political parties to sign a peace deal as commitment to preach a message of peace and desisting from violent activities during campaigns and election,” he said.

Bishop Musonda said CCZ is impressed with the leadership that President Lungu is providing as the country faces economic challenges.

He said the country has faced enormous challenges after the demise of President Sata but they are being attended to.

  1. Thankyou bishop. We are appealing to Nawakwi to Quickly meet lungu becouse she is lungu’s running mate. FDD members talk quickly to mama Nawakwi

Nawakwi,cant work with ecl very far.How runatic is to be a runningmate with this condemed govnt?pf is totally rejected everywhere.Its breathing coz of the last coin in govnt&let parley dissolve,u ‘ll mark my word!everyone this time around is shouting4 a change!if nawakwi squeezi herself with fdd,thats her suicide{yapwa}

  3. please opposition come together so that we can vote out the PF.Look at all the planned violence, why should we allow our brothers or sisters or in laws in one province to be victimised just because the head of the strongest opposition comes from there? Please all peace loving Zambians let us save our country from a civil war.

  4. the only viable alliance is PF-MMD. It is a natural alliance between parties with similar views on many issues including the constitutional amendments, economic policy, etc. note that the PF and MMD are essentially one and the same party. They are like mixing water with 10% Salt and water with 15% salt. The PF was only born because
    Michael Sata did not like the manner in which Levy Mwanawasa was brought in as President by Chiluba, You could call it undemocratic if you like. But look at the proposed alliance between Kabimba’s Rainbow and HH’s UPND, Pure socialism Marxist style and pure capitalism is like trying to mix oil and water. The facts are not lost on HH, Kabimba, mmembe and others, that is why they have sponsored all sorts of id.iots to destabilize the MMD but they will never…

  5. Cont… The facts are not lost on HH, Kabimba, mmembe and others, that is why they have sponsored all sorts of id.iots to destabilize the MMD but they will never succeed to divide what is essentially Siamese twins.
