President Edgar Lungu says he is confident that Zambians will give him a fresh mandate.
And President Lungu has urged Zambians to remain peaceful and allow the Electoral Commission of Zambia to complete the election process peacefully.

President Lungu said Zambians who have voted should patiently wait for the results in a peaceful manner.

Speaking when he cast his vote at Andrew Mwenya Basic School in Chawama, President Lungu said it is important for the nation to remain peaceful during this period.

“I have voted and now I am going home to sleep and wait for the results. You should do the same, vote and go home and eat, drink tea, drink wine and remain peaceful and wait, that is all you can do for nowl,” President Lungu told Reporters.

President Lungu who was accompanied by his wife Esther and daughter Stella and a handful of supporters voted at around 10:00 Hours this morning.

Meanwhile, FDD presidential candidate Edith Nawakwi has described that she is the fiercest candidate in today’s election.

She said all the other contenders have been spreading falsehoods about working with the FDD because they know that she is a fierce contender.

Mrs Nawakwi said he is confident she will scoop the election out rightly in the first round because her message has been well received countrywide.

“You are all aware that our brothers have performed poorly over the last 52 years and it is now time for a woman to lead this nation,” Mrs Nawakwi told Reporters after casting her vote at UNZA Sports Hall at around 09:30 Hours in the company of her husband.

    • Lungu is going home to Chawama not to rest, but to intoxicate himself with Jameson & dance Dununa reverse!
      Hope Lungu has parked up all of his Jameson, he will need them for a healing process after being voted out.
      Sleeping Lungu, its bye bye PF bandits & Viva HH, Forward with UPND prosperity.

      Only Human Happiness (HH) can fix the crumbled economic quagmire caused by visionless Lungu & PF hooligans.

  3. Lungu said “ You should do the same, vote and go home and eat, drink tea, drink wine and remain peaceful”, but sir, you left out, er “drink Jameson and remain peaceful”

    With all the suffering during the PF’s 5 years
    I hope Zambians have learnt a lesson, not to ever vote a vision less person into State house again.

    • I voted for Edgar Chagwa Lungu and all PF candidates and a Yes for the referendum at the UNZA polling station after standing on the queue from 06.15 to 10.50hrs. Indeed, President Lungu deserves some good rest after a hectic campaign. See you at the inauguration.

  4. Definitely a higher percentage; President Lungu has managed to keep the party together, despite having a lot of disgruntled individuals fighting him from within the party; but thank God, all the weeds got themselves out by themselves – 2 Chronicles 20:20-25. Now PF has been more stable and much more organised than any other political party in Zambia, and besides he continued with late President Sata’ legacy of unprecedented development – hence PF will get not less than 55%.

  5. Asigai it is true He needs and deserve a rest after conducting three to four rallies plus state house work. Indeed he has done his part very well. Because of the old 2011 register he is likely to win between 1800 000 and 2500 000 so PF’s victory is certain. My caution is depending much on fake analysis can cost good health.
    To everyone you must stop thinking of your money spent in campaign because no how candidates spent in this election; at ward, constituency, mayoral and presidetial/running mate there will be only one winner at ward, constituency, mayoral and two winners presidetial and his running mate

  10. 90 % of voters in the polling station we voted for President Lungu were heard saying we are renewing his Five Year Term Contract.
    I am very certain like over 4 million Zambians are voting for President Lungu. It pays to work hard and be a man of your word! Peace and prosperity and more more development begins next week. Viva ECL and PF.

  11. Gender Bullying Manager (GBM) made a mistake and marked at PF he forgot that he is in UPND. He was just looking for symbols NOT names and crossed at PF. Thank you GBM for your one vote.

  14. I am not sure whether or not ba LT quoted ECL in context about enticing people to sit and lazy about while waiting for results.
    Since counting results will take at least 48hrs to start coming out, it is more productive and mature to tell citizens to go back to work after the one-day (Thursday) holiday, and NOT ENTICE people to sit and drink while waiting for results?
    As a matter of fact, in developed Countries, where we (Zambia) borrow money from, it is business as usual on the voting day and the following days.
    e.g. I voted recently in the UK referendum, and it was business as usual on the day of voting and the days that followed.
