So we plan to focus on less controvesial but high value proposals so as to optimise on the limited time,” Mr. Sinkamba said.
Mr. Sinkamba added that he hopes that soon, the warm relation that exists between his party and the ruling party will extend to other parties, especially the UPND.

“As the Green Party, we are quite elated that President Edgar Lungu has initiated reconciliation with UPND Leader Hakainde Hichilema. We think that the move could not have come at a better time than now. We hope that soon, the two leaders will meet and reconcile their differences. We believe that there is urgent need to restore unity and harmony in the nation so that we can all put together our brains with one common agenda to redeem mother Zambia,” Mr. Sinkamba said .
“As we have always said, nothing in this world is more important than reconciliation. We think that time for pride and belligerency is over as belligerency will never take this country anywhere. We think that time has now come for mutual respect, reconciliation and national development above all,” he added.
