The Electoral Commission of Zambia (ECZ) has warned political party cadres to desist from pulling down campaign materials or face prosecution once arrested.
Commission spokesperson, Chris Akufuna says political party cadres must stop pulling posters because it is against the law and the electoral code of conduct.
Mr. Akufuna told ZNBC News in Lusaka that the behaviour is unfortunate and getting out of control.
He urged political parties to educate their carders on the legal implications of pulling down campaign materials.
And Mr. Akufuna said the commission is still compiling the list of successful candidates in the August 11 general election.
He also confirmed that there are indications of some candidates having gone through unopposed in the local government elections.
