President Edgar Lungu has urged PF members on the Copperbelt to ensure that they turn out in large numbers on August 11 to avoid a re-run.
Mr Lungu says a re-run will be costly to the country.
The head of state has called on PF members in the province to get down to serious campaigns, especially at grassroots level.
President Lungu was speaking at Simon Mwansa Kapwepwe International Airport in Ndola this evening before departure for Lusaka.
And Mr Lungu says some opposition leaders already know that they have lost the election to the PF and are looking for excuses.
He wondered why some contenders are saying they will not accept the results of the poll even before elections are conducted.
Meanwhile, President Edgar Lungu has advised political players in the country to be tolerant and allow each other to campaign without intimidation.
Speaking on arrival from the Copperbelt this evening where he had a series of engagements, President Lungu says politicians should only focus on selling their manifestos to electorates without any form of intimidation.
He has further appealed to PF members to buy into his philosophy by calling for peace.
And President Lungu has rated the PF’s strength on Copperbelt at 85 percent compared to last year’s 75 percent.
He said this is owing to the economic strides that the PF government has made in the province and the country as a whole.
