DEFENCE Minister Richwell Siamunene has emphasized the need for the Patriotic Front(PF) supporters to mounts an issue based and violent campaigns ahead of the August 11 polls.
Addressing a public meeting at Malima in Sinazongwe, today, Mr Siamunene said the PF will not engage in campaigns of character assassination but will focus on issue based campaigns in order to woo supporter from voters.
It is not possible for the opposition political parties to dislodge the PF from Government in the upcoming polls because the ruling party has delivered development to the Zambian people, said Mr Siamunene.
The former UPND Sinazongwe Member of Parliament said it is wishful thinking for the opposition United Party for National Development (UPND) to claim that it is going to wrestle power from the PF.
He said Sinazongwe district alone has received a fair share of development going by the new infrastructure including roads and health facilities that have been built within a short period of the PF being in Government.
Mr Siamunene said he is confident that the Zambian people will accord the PF a resounding victory in the August 11 polls based on its good record in the delivery of development in the social and economic sectors.
He assured the people of Sinazongwe that , if adopted, he will re-contest the seat on the PF ticker, urging the electorate to vote for him and the President Lungu.
