Dr Charlotte Scott says the decision by the Lusaka High Court to nullify the election of Margaret Mwanakatwe as Member of Parliament for Lusaka Central seat proves that the August elections were not free and fair.
In an interview, Dr Scott said the overturning of Mrs Mwanakatwe’s victory means that justice has been served.
She however stated that the plea of the UPND is to have the presidential petition heard.
Dr Scott said the evidence coming out of the nullified seats goes to confirm that the UPND was robbed of victory.
Mrs Mwanakatwe’s election victory has been nullified on grounds including corrupt acts, use of discriminatory language, misuse of Government resources and that Dr Scott was prevented from campaigning freely by the Police.
“I am delighted with the judgement, and very grateful to the brilliant legal team, the whole Lusaka Central team, the people of Lusaka Central, and to the party leadership,” she said.
