PF North Western Province Campaign Manager Stephen Masumba says there has been an overwhelming response from women willing to participate in next year’s elections.
Speaking in an interview Mr Masumba said women in the province have come on board after the pronouncement made by the President assuring them of 40% places for nomination.
“The people in the Province are very happy and the women have come on board, they are applying for certain positions and we are certain that we will reach the 40% reserved for women. We are also proud that young people are applying and as you know North Western Province is known for young leaders as you can see from the likes of myself,” he said.
And Mr Masumba has praised President Lungu for the developmental projects that he has taken to the Province.
He said President Lungu ought to be commended for the projects that he has launched in the Province within the short period that he has been in office.
He said in the last one year President Lungu has visited North Western 7 times and that he is the only seating President who has frequently visited the province so many times.
Mr Masumba has since called on the people in the province to ignore the prophets of doom who have been lying about the PF in the Province and vote for the party as they can see for themselves the projects which have been launched since he came into office.
He also said UPND should stop lying to themselves that the Province is their stronghold as people have seen that the PF means well and they will vote for the party to ensure that they continue on the development path that the province has started.
