UPND Chairman of Elections Ackson Sejani says only the President of the Party will have the last say on who picked regardless of the primary results.
Mr Sejani said there are a lot of speculations, rumours and early celebrations but people should not celebrate because the process is long hence no one is neither in nor out.
“It has come to my attention that the primaries results are being shared circulated on social media. Please note that only the President will have the last say on these results after all stages of screening have been concluded and on advice of the NMC.
“I have heard a lot of speculations, rumours and early celebrations. Let me assure everyone that this is a long process and we are basically at the preliminary stage. No one is in no one is out,” he said.
He called on members and bloggers to stop announcing primary results on social media.
“The party leadership is aware of what’s happening and remedial measures will be instituted.
In the meantime I urge all OUR membership including social media bloggers to stop announcing the emerging results,” he said.
Mr Sejani’s remarks comes after members of the party have continued posting the results of primary elections for candidates on their Facebook pages and various social media platforms.
