The Patriotic Front Central Committee has resolved that members who have applied for readmission into the party have to wait for at least three years
minutes in line with the party’s constitution.
Former Matero MP Miles Sampa is one of the high profile politician who has publicly applied to rejoin the PF.
But in a statement issued by PF Secretary General Davies Mwila, the Central Committee which met yesterday at State House reiterated the provisions of the PF constitution in article 74 sub-article 16 which states that a person who resigns from the Party shall not apply for re-admission within three years from the date of resignation,
The meeting which was chaired by President Edgar Lungu resolved that that all former members that desire to rejoin PF are expected to comply with this constitutional provision.
The meeting also unanimously endorsed the Candidature of Kitwe Mayor Councillor Christopher Kang’ombe for the position of President of the Local Government Association of Zambia.
“Hence the Party expects all PF councillors to vote for Councillor Kang’ombe and thereafter, offer him necessary support to succeed in his work bearing in mind that his success would be the success of the PF as a whole. Finally, we wish to inform our members that the Secretary General and selected members of the Central Committee will soon embark on a programme of visiting party officials in all provinces as part of a long term project to strengthen our Party,” Mr Mwila said.
