The ruling Patriotic Front (PF) says its victory in the just ended Chilanga Parliamentary by-election is a clear signal of what is expected in the 2021 general election.
Addressing Journalists in Lusaka, PF Media Director, Sunday Chanda says the victory in Chilanga shows that the people of Zambia still have confidence in the leadership of President Edgar Lungu and the Patriotic Front.
Mr. Chanda says the UPND and other opposition parties should start preparing for another humiliation in the 2021 elections because the PF will retain power due to its transformative agenda.
He says it’s clear that the opposition strategy of insulting President Lungu and calling his Government names aimed at turning the Zambian people against the government is not working.
He says President Lungu is gaining popularity with every single election.
Mr. Chanda states that if the UPND cannot change its leadership, they are gone for good.
PF’s Maria Langa is the new Chilanga Member of Parliament after polling 7,226 votes beating her closest rival UPND’s Charmaine Musonda who poll 6,410.
