Patriotic Front (PF) Deputy Secretary General Mumbi Phiri is happy with the response from party members applying to be adopted to stand as Members of Parliament on the PF ticket in the August 11 general elections.
Mrs. Phiri has also expressed happiness with the response from women and youths aspiring to stand as MP’s and councillors on the PF ticket.
She told ZANIS in an interview in Lusaka today that the response has also been overwhelming in places where the PF is considered as underdogs.
And Mrs. Phiri has castigated some PF members going round proclaiming that they have been endorsed by President Edgar Lungu to stand as MP’s and councillors.
Mrs. Phiri reiterated that President Lungu has made it clear several times that he has not endorsed anyone to stand as MP or councillor on the ruling PF ticket.
