PATRIOTIC Front (PF) secretary general Davies Chama has said the central committee is today expected to receive all the names of applicants for the parliamentary and local government seats for this year’s general elections.

Mr Chama has also warned applicants against putting the name of President Edgar Lungu into disrepute by claiming that they have already been adopted by him.

He said in an interview that the party had delayed to receive the names from Central and North-Western provinces because of some challenges in receiving applications from far-flung areas.

Mr Chama, however, assured that the ruling party was on schedule to select its candidates for the parliamentary and local government seats ahead of the nominations next month.

He appealed to applicants to support whoever would be adopted in their respective seats, saying members had many things to do for the party beyond getting adopted.

He accused some opposition political parties of struggling to find members to contest on their tickets.

“What they have now resorted to doing is to start poaching our members by lying to them that we don’t mean well to them, that is why they have not been adopted, which is a lie because the President has embraced everyone,” he said.

Mr Chama said the PF had not announced the candidates for all constituencies and it was, therefore, misleading for some members to claim they had already been adopted.

He also noted that the party had challenges to meet the 40 per cent of women candidates at parliamentary level, citing an unfriendly political environment in the country.

Meanwhile, 42 people have been shortlisted out of the 130 candidates interviewed for parliamentary seats in Lusaka Province.

PF Lusaka Province chairperson Horace Longwe said the provincial leadership had concluded interviews and out of the 130 candidates interviewed for the parliamentary seats, 42 were shortlisted.

Mr Longwe said the PF provincial leadership was currently finalising the report to be presented to the central committee.

He also said 200 candidates were shortlisted for council seats in the province out of the 500 that were interviewed.

He said the party was ready for the elections and was on the ground ensuring that its candidates that were aspiring for positions were credible.


  1. Which far flung areas in central and north western is this chama talking about, let him just say people are scared to stand on pf ticket, and how does pf reach 40% threshold for women to stand as MPs with what happened on youth day and in luanshya were you cadres undressed a mother and in luanshya your hooligans maimed your own chairlady over chibuku money, i wonder if there any genuine ladies who want to associate themselves with pf.

  2. Real PF members will be known by how they will react when not adopted. Central commett members we don’t want the president to appoint ministers from other parties go for ministerial materials. Pipo who have heart for this country. The better the person the easier it will be for lungu.

  3. @Divide and rule, central province of Zambia has remote rural areas which requires helicopters in particular during the rain season. Equally the same thing with north western province and this was the reason when pf came into power they started opening new roads.

  4. Make sure you adopt strong and famous candidates to make work simple for PF to retain power in 2016 so that development across Zambia can continue and a Godly president Edgar Lungu can as well continue ruling us real Christians than being led by well known Satan1st who wishes for Armageddon on 11/08/2016-GOD FORBID!!!”IFINTU NI LUNGU-2016!!GO PF GO!!

  5. zambia can only change if we put the right pipo at right place yes together we can make zambia a better plece say no to corruption.

  6. Eddy. Not all who say FATHER FATHER will inherit the Kingdom of God. God is sovereign in all His dealings. If He desires to put someone vicious in office who are we to say NO. My brother if your are a born again christian do not use the name of the Lord for your political expedience. Read the book THE SOVEREIGNTY
    OF GOD By: A.W. PINK. You will understand the mind of God.

  7. Pick a candidate who is on the ground especially here in Chadiza. Don’t give us MMD CANDIDATE ALLAN MBEWE WE DONT WANT HIM.IF U WILL DARES ADOPTING HIM THEN PF IS LOOSING THE PARLIAMENTARY SET.
