President Edgar Lungu will launch a new manifesto for the ruling Patriotic Front-PF once the official campaign period starts.
PF Secretary General Davies Chama says President Lungu will give direction of how the PF will be governed when he is re-elected President of Zambia.
Mr. Chama says the current PF manifesto was for a term of Five years from 2011 to 2016.
And Mr. Chama says the PF will only launch its official campaign when the ECZ announces the campaign period officially.
He also says currently the party is compiling its lists of adoptions from all levels of the party for onward submission to the central committee.
Mr. Chama has urged PF members who will not be adopted to support the party.
Meanwhile, Solwezi Central Member of Parliament Dawson Kafwaya is confident that President Edgar Lungu will win this year’s elections because of the many developmental projects taking place across the country.
Mr. Kafwaya says North Western Province and Solwezi in particular has seen a number of developmental projects taking place notable among them is the construction of a modern market, a civic centre, bridges and feeder roads.
He said Solwezi has also benefited 9 health posts under the 650 that government is constructing countrywide of which 8 have been completed.
Mr. Kafwaya said the people of Solwezi are happy with the developments taking place in the area and that they have pledged to work with the government of the day.
He said contrary to assertions by some section of society that the province is an opposition strong hold, people of Solwezi are in support of President Edgar Lungu’s leadership.
Mr. Kafwaya who is also Local Government and Housing Deputy Minister further said works on the Solwezi- Chingola road are progressing well.
He said it is unfortunate that people want to politicize government developmental programmes unnecessarily.
Mr. Kafwaya was speaking in an interview with ZNBC News in Kitwe today.
