All Peoples Congress Leader Nason Msoni has challenged UPND Members of parliament to also boycott sitting allowances from parliament because they have refused to recognize the current administration.
Mr. Msoni is shocked that the UPND has refused to recognize government when they are part of it through the legislative arm of government.
He told Hot FM News that the behavior of the UPND is undermining public confidence in the entire opposition political parties and giving advantage to independent candidates to win elections.
Mr Msoni is among the many people who have commented on the controversy that has surrounded the directive by the UPND leadership for their MPs to shun State functions until the Presidential petition is exhausted.
The directive comes in the wake of their MP for Kembe Constituency Princess Kusune Zulu’s interaction with the Republican President at a function in her Constituency where she was invited as the guest.
On Tuesday a youth leader castigated the UPND leadership describing the directive as ridiculous, outrageous and dictatorial.
Prince Ndoyi who is the former ZANASU Vice President said in as much as the party sponsored the law makers to parliament, the parliamentarians are not in the house to represent the UPND but the people who voted for them.
He also said the MPs become part of the government the day they took their oaths hence should not confuse political functions with State functions.
