PF Deputy secretary-general Mumbi Phiri says the PF will bounce back into power after the August 11 general elections because of the massive support it is receiving across the country.
Mrs Phiri said the PF will win this year’s elections convincingly because of the massive infrastructure development projects being implemented in all parts of the country.
Speaking when she featured on a live phone-in programme on Radio Kabangabanga in Solwezi on Sunday, Mrs Phiri said the infrastructure development taking place since the PF assumed office is unprecedented.
“The infrastructure development which has been done in four years is unprecedented and is massive,” she said.
Mrs Phiri said the PF is comfortable with the 50-percent-plus-one winning threshold.
“Fifty percent plus one is what the people of Zambia were crying for, and us in PF, we have given the people what they wanted,” Mrs Phiri said.
She said there will be no re-run in this year’s presidential elections under the new electoral system because PF has amassed enormous support to capture the majority vote.
And Mrs Phiri said the violence in Choma by suspected United Party for National Development (UPND) cadres indicates that the opposition political party has already conceded defeat.
She said the PF means well for the people of Zambia and she urged the people of North-Western Province to embrace the ruling party and support President Lungu in the forthcoming general elections.
Mrs Phiri also urged qualified youths and women to take advantage of the grade 12 certificate requirement to aspire for council and parliamentary seats.
