FILE: RAINBOW Party leader Wynter Kabimba reads a joint communique at Courtyard Hotel in Lusaka on behalf of other opposition Political Parties among them Rainbow Party,UPND, ADD, Peoples Party, Green Party, UPP and NDP.

Some opposition political parties have unanimously rejected the decision by the Electoral Commission of Zambia to award the tender to print the ballot papers to Al Ghurair Printing Company of Dubai.

And the opposition parties have also rejected the decision by the ECZ to hold the referendum alongside the general elections.

Presenting a petition on behalf of the political stakeholders during a meeting organised by the ECZ at Mika Convention Centre, Rainbow Party leader Wynter Kabimba said the stakeholders are fully agreed that the Dubai firm should not be allowed to print the ballot papers.

Mr Kabimba also stated that political parties want the ECZ to postpone the elections because it is clear that the Commission will not be ready to hold fair and credible elections by August 11th 2016.

The petition was presented to ECZ Chairperson Justice Essau Chulu after the meeting adjourned to allow the stakeholders and the ECZ to hold separate meetings in order to consult further.

After the meeting reconvened, the political parties insisted that the ECZ does not know what it is doing especially with regard to verification of Grade 12 certificates even after the High Court ruling.

Mr Kabimba said the manner in which the ECZ is handling preparations for the elections is a recipe for confusion.

He said holding the referendum alongside the general elections will give fertile ground for electoral malpractice.

But Justice Chulu insisted that the tender to print ballot papers will remain with the Dubai firm because it was the one which successfully bid.

And Mr Kabimba later announced that there was clearly an impasse between the ECZ and political stakeholders over the main concerns raised over forthcoming elections.

The meeting which was expected to close at 12 Hours ended up closing around 16 Hours without any clear resolutions.

    • ECZ is a public institution and it run as such. Its mandate should be to serve the interest of the public not a few corrupt individuals. Wherever Pricila Isaacs and her team gets the arrogance for now only them know better. One day they’ll pay for their arrogance the hard way.

    • This is a classic case of protruding ignorance among politicians with respect to public institution autonomy. They would lose any case in a court of Juriprudence brought up against ECZ over its constitutionally mandated independence. If politicians starts making matching orders on independent institutions then where auyonomy? They are at liberty to boycott these tripartite elections, who cares? UNIP already set a perfect precedence in 1996. There will always be Zambia beyond these free parties to boycot. Forward with the nation we the people will vote enmass for whoever we want on the ballot. Democracy gives us choices.

    • I am actually very disappointed with this decision. The opposition can not call for a postponement of elections, where in the world. Its totally ridiculous. We need mature leadership in Zambia. I can assure you, Lungu is laughing all the way to election day.

    • Boycotting is a choice in democracy. Please boycott now the willing will pitch with withless cost as we the people will give them a ruling mandate regardless. It’s called self inhiration strategy widely used by all self assured defeatists in African political liberal space. I challenge them to announce their boycott tomorrow. Otherwise, we the prodemocrats will start blasting the news on all airwaves and print media to our rural communities that cowards have willfully boycotted open elections they only exist on the internet.

    • If postponed ECL government will fakaspeed in development, uniting the country and consolidating power which gives him a good and enough time to prepare for a landslide win towards his 5 year mandate. The service can even do better AAC work. Either way Zambians wins and ECL wins. You spent too much time counting on ECL’s death and insulting him. You see now no dividend but kulamnwaza chabe.

    • Does Kabimba even know what it takes to postpone a Constitutionally Mandated Election Date? This guy really needs to go back to Law School for a refresher course. Baba, ELECTION DATE in Zambia is now a Constitutional issue which even the President or ECZ can NOT easily tamper with. Not even you Wynter and your directionless opposition cohorts can easily cause the postponement of elections in Zambia anymore. The days of political impunity when politicians, like the President, would set arbitrary dates for elections are no more. Live with it!!

      You have even failed to raise your Presidential nomination fees, is this a way of trying to stay relevant in these elections?

      Prepare adequately and be ready next time. Let those who are ready to participate this time around do so without LOSERS like Wynter causing unnecessary confusion and political anxieties.

    • When a Party in power begin to temper with elections, that is the end of a country. Mark my words, Lungu and RB are setting Zambia on an unfortunate path. Being in Government should not be a matter of life and death. If Zambian people do not vote for you, well and good step aside and do other things. This is always when you have incompetent leaders. They always want to hang on to power. Really sad for Zambia.

    • I FULLY AGREE WITH WYNTER. ANY CREDIBLE ELECTION STARTS WITH A CREDIBLE PERCEPTION AND CONDUCT. ECZ YOU CANNOT IGNORE ALL OTHER PARTICIPANTS JUST BECAUSE NO EVIDENCE WAS BROUGHT TO YOU. ITS ABOUT CREATING AN ENVIRONMENT THAT ALL PARTICIPANTS AGREE AND ANY OBJECTIONS ESPECIALLY BY THE MAJORITY OF PARTICIPANTS SHOULD BE TAKEN VERY SERIOUS. IF IT WAS JUST ONE PARTY THEN ITS JUSTIFIABLE WHAT ECZ DID BUT NOT ALMOST ALL PARTICIPANTS ARE SAYING THE SAME THING AND YOU STILL IGNORE THEIR CONCERNS. THE RIGHT THING ECZ SHOULD HAVE DONE WAS ASK FOR PARTICIPANTS TO VOTE FOR TWO OR THREE OF THEIR CHOICE AND THEN THEY CHOSE FROM THEIR USING THEIR SO CALLED AUTONOMY POWER.

    • Yes I reckon the opposition parties should boycott these elections and let PF contest them on their own. The process of a free and fair elections shouldn’t not only declared to he be fair but it should be seen to be so. The arrogance exhibited by Chulu to be upset is ridiculous when he’s a tax payer paid employee. If he had any small remnant of integrity he would have voluntarily resigned because the stakeholders he’s serving have clearly lost confidence in him and his leadership team. But this is Zambia!

      For the Lungu cheerleaders, you must know that if elections are boycotted, Lungu’s mandate will end on August 11 and he would be occupying the office illegally and his legitimacy will be questionable. Simply put he will have no country to run.

    • The only medicine for the opposition to win this presidential election is to unite and put forward only one credible candidate. HH and Nawakwi should unite and partner to form the next government. There will be roles for other opposition leaders to play in the next government so they should not feel left out.

    • Yet another proof, as if more was needed, that Zambia is a failed country. You have a stoopid judge pomposity mouthing off a decision he cannot support and explain, to print the ballot papers in Dubai. And you have a supposed lawyer suggesting that elections should be postponed. Unless you change the Constitution, the elections cannot be delayed. This is just like the PF farcical elections where Lungu was elected president. Lungu will pull a fast one with the help of Chulu if the opposition play silly games of postponement.

    • I think you misunderstand the importance of opposition political party leaders and the role they play in a supposedly democracy like Zambia. Without the opposition, Lungu’s legitimacy is non existent. He simply looks and becomes another dictator like Kim Jun UN or whatever his name is.

      Lungu is called president and given that legitimacy because he’s seen to have won a legitimate, credible, free and fair elections. If he won’t even contest any polls against anyone he won’t only lose legitimacy in Zambia but his international standing will be compromised too.

      So please stop trivializing important national issues. This is not a game.

  4. Wynter et al,you (Wynter) are a Lawyer and you need to know that for good democracy we need to always resort to the law and institutions of governance! In this case,please go to court,obtain an injunction and sue the ECZ and the Zambia Procurement Authority (ZPA) to challenge the award of the contract! Please stop creating situations of anarchy and ultimatums in the vacuum-actions that have no legal basis! Why did you wait till dissolution of parliament to start talking about postponing elections now? Why are other bidders for printing of ballot papers not complaining against the decision.Please use laws to win your fights not this anarchy you want to create!! If there is something wrong,please prove it legally and leave Zambians in peace to soldier on with their lives!

As things are, these people are conniving and hiding behind procurement laws. They know that their jobs are also on the line if PF is kicked out, simply because they have sold their integrity and souls. They are political appointees all the way to the judges.

      Best is to boycott and let them conduct their sham elections, rather than giving them legitimacy. What a pathetic country this is. All of this behaviour is borne out the notion that nothing will happen, Zambia is a peaceful country. Peace has been taken for granted, without justice there can be no peace!

The opposition should do more, whatever it takes to stop PF from doing this only God knows. Otherwise the people of zambia are set for change this election acept for few that are directly milking from the gov. resources whilest many Zambians are suffering.

  6. There is going to be chaos in the country if we are not careful with the manner we are dealing with these issues. I hope that ECZ and other stakeholders will find a solution that will satisfy everyone. These people must look at the welfare of the country at large and not only their political ambitions. We must live above the board and insure things are right and conducive for such a huge exercise, otherwise people will be incensed and ran amok.

      Stop your delusions before you start seeing DEAD PEOPLE where there aren’t any! No one at ECZ is working on behalf any political Party. For once let us RESPECT the independence of our Constitutionally set up institutions to conduct people’s business unmolested by political mercenaries. ECZ gets funded through “Parliamentary appropriations and donations,” NOT THROUGH A GOVT MINISTRY, So I don’t see how anyone in Govt can have undue influence on ECZ.

You can’t have “elections” for every position in the land—elections are expensive by nature. Now, if “we the people” of this Country choose not to allow institutions we have set up for ourselves to function as intended, then why in H3LL ARE WE WASTING TIME AND MONEY on them?

Besides Chulu came only to announce immediately after Lungu arrived from Dubai. Why have they chosen a two time expensive project with the hardships Zambia is facing? Such are the questions Zambians be asking. The whole thing shows how Lungu is determine to use the MU7 formula.

The insistency by ESC and PF means the Dubai Printer is ECL and PF’s “smoking gun” to rigging elections in 2016. Lungu has created a constitutional crisis and let him rule without Parliament and we see. Mean time all Opposition parties should mobilise all citizens to effect citizens’s arrest of Lungu’s illegal ministers and make them inoperate. Let Lungu rule on his own without MPs and legitimacy and see how far he goes.

    So Country-men, bloggers, open up your eyes and minds, lets not allow such a situation to occur, the discussion here should be how we ensure “win-win” a situation for all parties to save their faces, lets not succumb to cheap politics and to be short sighted. I want a peaceful Zambia, a peaceful model for Africa.

    • Thats why the opposition must be reasonable also. We have transparent ballot boxes and each party is required to have representation in every polling station and have an eagle’s eye on the ballot box. The only thing the opposition party should insist on is that votes be counted right at the polling station immediately after the last vote is casted, which i believe is what happens in recent elections. Then it doesn’t matter where ballot papers are printed, nevertheless ECZ should consider changing the printer just to have a harmonious process devoid of suspicions. UK to me remains the best option and not South Africa. Someone mentioned Germany also,which is okay.

  17. Post and ZWD (HH’s blog) are unable to coherently define or explain election rigging because within their own ranks the cartel has become immersed in the muck of conspiracy theories and biased misinformation. For example Kabimba and the criminals he is representing at the Post newspapers should produce evidence to the effect that the Dubai firm rigs elections. The criminals at HH’s blog (ZWD) and Mmembe’s post seem not to know the difference between tweeting and journalism. These criminals don’t know the difference between gossip and news. Thank Mr Esau Chulu for refusing to be intimidated by this cartel, you are a real man. We want to vote on 11th August,2016.

      Even if the ECZ had selected a printer from South Africa, they would have found fault with that decision too. It’s easy to cry out wolf when you are in the opposition because it’s almost always certain that the underdog is the victim. Those that want to boycott can go back home to sleep. We are tired of comforting the ‘victims’.

  21. From 1895 to 1968, it took colonial government of northern Rhodesia 71 years to build one university (UNZA). Guy Scott will not tell you these facts. On the other hand, it has taken PF government a mere 5 years to have over 6 universities. Without talking about the roads and hydroelectricity projects, Zambia has experienced a massive feat of infrastructure development and that is what is giving HH, Kabimba and cartel they represent serious diarrhoea. Kabimba should boycott the election if he wants to, we don’t give a damn. Hundreds of primary and secondary schools have been built throughout the country. Yes, there are challenges in maintaining some of the infrastructure but it is there. There are many construction projects happening in Zambia. viva ecl 2016.

    • Who says development of our country should be compared to the colonialists? How shallow can one be to think about a time when Zambia as a whole had less than 3 million people. Now do the math, add up all trade schools, colleges and schools built by the colonial master to the ratio of the population at the time. Then do the same for those in the last 5 years to the ration of 15million people. Who built more? This is how you do stats.

    • Ba Lazaro, we don’t need an experienced politician in Zambia because Zambian political culture is murred with corruption and malpractice. Whatever experience you think is gained from Zambian politics is mediocre. There is no CV from Lungu that is impressive. If it were so, for every position you listed please list the social change or policy associated with his name. Otherwise just stop it already with nonsensical posts of thing you are not privy to.

  25. Why ECZ should not listen to our oppositions. 1 To them opposing is their nature. 2. No party has ever been happy with elections in Zambia. 3 If they change another party will oppose to whatever country they will go to. 4. Grade 12 issue has not only affected the opposition but the ruling as well.

    • Why everybody should not liaten to maggie. 1. She does not understand the issue at hand and does not know when to politik and when not. 2. All parties who lost in the past including PF voiced their concerned bit later conceeded. This shows that once their grievances are looked into they are happy with the results. 3. Printing ballot papers is not about the country but the company. This issue at hand is about the company not the country. 4. G12 issue is already resolved by the High Court.

    If the issue is clarification is grade 12 certificate, I am made to understand that it has been ruled by the Courts that tertiary training is acknowledged as equivalent and if not even more to grade 12 certificate.

    While the ECZ needs to be held accountable, please do it in a manner that show respect to this independent ECZ. This matters to us your electorates.

  28. I FULLY AGREE WITH WYNTER. ANY CREDIBLE ELECTION STARTS WITH A CREDIBLE PERCEPTION AND CONDUCT. ECZ YOU CANNOT IGNORE ALL OTHER PARTICIPANTS JUST BECAUSE NO EVIDENCE WAS BROUGHT TO YOU. ITS ABOUT CREATING AN ENVIRONMENT THAT ALL PARTICIPANTS AGREE AND ANY OBJECTIONS ESPECIALLY BY THE MAJORITY OF PARTICIPANTS SHOULD BE TAKEN VERY SERIOUS. IF IT WAS JUST ONE PARTY THEN ITS JUSTIFIABLE WHAT ECZ DID BUT NOT ALMOST ALL PARTICIPANTS ARE SAYING THE SAME THING AND YOU STILL IGNORE THEIR CONCERNS. THE RIGHT THING ECZ SHOULD HAVE DONE WAS ASK FOR PARTICIPANTS TO VOTE FOR TWO OR THREE OF THEIR CHOICE AND THEN THEY CHOSE FROM THEIR USING THEIR SO CALLED AUTONOMY POWER.

See what he has brought to Zambia. he will bring more problems from radicals in Saudi Arabia, the home of Osama Bin Laden. now our Zambian women are dressed like Muslims when they go there. Yet their women will never be dressed in Chitenge’s here. Once PF goes out of power, Isaacs and Chulu and all ECZ leaders who have been comprised should be caged for corruption.

There is no way we can allow whats going on in this country. We are Zambians a people that have always united around a cause to make the right decision. We are a people filled with love and unit. Clearly the Lungu gang is upto no good its time we all united and put a responsible group of people in government. Lets all ask our innermost beings and ask if we are really pushing the right cause by supporting what PF and Lungu are doing to our once great country. Are we going to be a failed generation?

  33. How come no one wants to show how the Dubai company is an accomplice in the rigging. There is no evidence just innuendos. This is being influenced by politicians are in the pockets of the losing bidders. The theory doesn’t even make sense. How in the world is the printing company going to rig? The ballots will have to be marked by the voter and verified against the voter list. Why would anyone want such shallow minds to rule. Last election they were accusing the South African company of rigging.

HH’s season of frustration and failures is over, and HH walks in a season of success and prosperity. Old things are passed away; all things are become new.

Father God, I commit all HH’s ways into Your hands today, and he leans not on my own understanding.

  41. In a democracy a party decides what is best for them. ECZ is an independent body which, by law, cannot be controlled by Govt or political parties.
    In 1996 UNIP boycotted elections because of a constitution article that they did not like but that did not stop elections from going on.
    Elections must go on, with or without the opposition.
    They have now come to realize that they have no following from the people of Zambia and want to use Drug Trafficking VJs useless accusations against elections that took place in another country.

    11th August, 2016 is a date that is constitutional for this year’s elections. That date can only be changed if the president recalled the dissolved parliament to decide on the demands of the opposition that a new date be set.
    We don’t want to waste people’s time on issues that are straight forward. Elections will take place as enshrined in the constitution- with or without Ichilema, Summer, Kilometers, Opusa, Homeless banda and Obvious Mwaicheka

  47. Is there a provision in the Constitution for such postponement? And if so, the elections can only be postponed to 11 August 2017 which is the next constitutional date. This also means the President and his Cabinet continue in office. This is good for ECL. He will comfortably carry on with his illustrious career and deliver even more to the Zambia people. It appears d’ull lawyers like Wynter still have not understood the Constitution. No wonder useless and threadbare debates will not end in Zambia. There is no other date but 11 August.

Now they have never impressed me, turn of events my vote is going to HH and UPND go for it guys I am behind you all the way. And this behaviour of mud sling HH, remember MMD and RB tried it on Sata it never worked people voted in numbers for him. The writing is on the wall you guys should PACK AND GO.

  52. The opposition is shocking to say the least. And a state counsel for that matter though a failed lawyer, to mislead other fulls. From what I know this was an open competitive tender and not a selective one where you limit the bidders to selected parties. If it was a selective tender the controversy would have been deeper, you can imagine for yourself….contd

  53. Since it was an open tender the bidders stood an equal chance of selection. In this case Al Gurab won. They presented the best bid technically and satisfied all conditions. It would be illegal to do otherwise both by local Za.mbian tender rules and by international rules of competitive bidding, FIDIC rules followed by the world bank and other members of the international community including EU and the US. The opposition and all the bidders were given a chance to review the tendering process or show impropriety. If ECZ capitulates to the opposition on this one it would not only be illegal but it would demonstrate to the world that Zambia has mo respect for the rule of law but for political expediency. That is not good for foreign investment or international relations.

It should also send representatives to Zambia so that they may address everyone’s concerns. The elections should not be postponed just because some political parties has not been able to file their nominations and are trying to derail the system. The parties that do not want the ballot papers printed in Dubai and have NOT filed the papers yet should explain in details why they feel the elections should be postponed and who they feel should print the ballot papers and why! Lets not be manipulated by these re-circled politician who have made it their career to use Zambians.
