The United Progressive People’s party (UPP) has demanded that the Electoral Commission of Zambia (ECZ) instantly disqualifies the Patriotic Front and the United Party for National Development (UPND) from taking part in the forthcoming elections.
UPP President told a media briefing in Lusaka that if the two parties are allowed to participate in the elections and it happens that they do not win the elections, they will be chaos in the country as they have demonstrated desperation to be in power.
Dr. Chishimba stressed that it is evident that the PF will not be able to relinquish power, while the UPND will not accept the loss; hence the need to disqualify them if there is to be peace in the country before and after the elections.
He said it is unfortunate that other peaceful political parties have to pay for the sins of the two political parties.
Dr. Chishimba added that it is sad that President Edgar Lungu has failed to demonstrate leadership on the issue of political violence.
