On the Referendum running concurrently with the elections , Mr Kabimba said his party was against and advised the people to vote No. “It would have been better, if the referendum was not running alongside with the elections, the Electoral Commission of Zambia should have created more room for people to understand the referendum question and so that they make an informed decision,” he said.
He expressed confident that his party would form government after the August 11, 2015 because of its clear policies.
He said the current economic challenges that country was facing was as a result of having the capitalist policies but his party if elected would have a socialist economic principle.
