The Patriotic Front has denied having any influence on the decision of the Constitutional Court to dismiss the UPND presidential election petition.
PF Deputy Spokesperson Frank Bwalya has told QTV that the PF did not intimidate the judge in any way.
He says the party is aware that the UPND is mourning its loss in the election and the petition and will therefore say anything.
Mr. Bwalya says the PF will give the UPND enough time to mourn its loss before engaging the opposition party on the many allegations it is making.
He however, states that the PF does not agree that the decision by the Constitution Court has manifested any tribal inclination.
Mr. Bwalya says it is a fact that the judges who dismissed the UPND petition do not come from Eastern province where President Edgar Lungu hails from.
And Mr Bwalya says President Edgar Lungu will continue promoting peace and unity as he starts his five year mandate.
Welcoming calls by different stakeholders that the President must unite the country, Mr. Bwalya says the Head of State has a passion and determination to unite the country.
Mr. Bwalya says President Lungu remains resolute in his efforts to maintain peace and unity.
He says President Lungu is God fearing and will ensure that he provides leadership to the country.
And Fourth Revolution president Eric Chanda has charged that UPND Leader Hakainde Hichilema and his running mate Geoffrey Mwamba had put their interest first before that of the Zambian people when they petitioned the presidential election outcome.
Mr. Chanda says the country was on auto pilot and the two leaders did not think of what would become of the people.
He has told QFM News via telephone that leaders should not be seen to frustrate the efforts of the people they wish to serve.
Mr Chanda hopes that political parties have learnt serious lessons from the just ended presidential election petition.
Meanwhile, a clergy man has advised the Patriotic Front supporters to celebrate the outcome of the presidential petition in a peaceful manner.
Presence of God Ministries Overseer Apostle Christopher Kunda says there is no need for the PF supporters to mock their friends from the opposition UPND.
Apostle Kunda says now that the court process is over, the best the people of Zambia can do is to move on as one, regardless of which political party one belongs to.
He has further urged Zambians to support President Edgar Lungu and his leadership
