MMD President Felix Mutati has called for responsible behavior from political parties participating in the presidential elections.

Mr Mutati whose party did not take part in the presidential poll but supported the ruling PF said that there is need to behave responsibly and desist from any actions that have the potential to undermine the ECZ and our democratic credentials as a nation.

He expressed concern that there was undue pressure which the ECZ was bearing and that the management of elections was a serious undertaking of which the ECZ is doing the best it can.

“Whether in government or opposition, we need to behave responsibly and desist from any actions that have the potential to undermine the ECZ and our democratic credentials as a nation.

“The Movement for Multiparty Democracy (MMD) is concerned about the unnecessary pressure which the Electoral Commission of Zambia (ECZ) has had to bear over the past few days.

“Management of elections is always a challenging undertaking and we believe that the ECZ has been striving to provide the best service under very difficult economic and logistical circumstances. The MMD believes that it is the duty of all political parties and stakeholders to support the noble efforts of all our institutions of governance including the ECZ, if our young democracy is to be sustained,” he said.

He said there is need for people to understand some of the reasons which has lead to the delay in announcing the results.

“Understandably, the process of announcing results of the presidential vote is extremely slow and the reasons are clear. The voter turnout in this years’ election was among the highest in recent years. Additionally, ECZ officials are managing five elections for the presidential, parliamentary, mayoral/council chairperson, councilor and the referendum.

“Also, the verification of results at the ECZ results center has incorporated political party representatives for the very first time thereby further delaying the process of announcing results.

We therefore urge fellow political players to provide sufficient space to officials of the ECZ to perform their duties without undue influence and pressure,” he said.

  2. If Felix plays his cards right, he may just be the force to watch in the next elections as the confused opposition tries to map their way forward.
