Headlines ECZ sets September 6 2018 as date for Kasenegwa parliamentary by-election

The Electoral Commission of Zambia -ECZ- has set Thursday, September 6 2018, as date for the Kasenegwa parliamentary by-election.

ECZ Public Relations Manager Margaret Chimanse also says the ECZ will conduct local government by-elections in Kamalamba, Liyovu, Mabili, Nkenyauna and Shikombwe wards.

Ms. Chimanse has advised aspiring candidates to lodge in completed nomination papers on Thursday, August 9th, 2018.

She has also disclosed that only five senior officials of participating political parties will be allowed to accompany aspiring candidates into the nomination centre during the filing of nominations, while the rest of supporters will remain outside the four hundred parameters from the centre.

The by election in Kasenengwa has been necessitated by the death of area MP Victoria Kalima on 15th June 2018, while the vacancies in the wards are as a result of resignation of councilors.

  1. They set the dates. They cook up results and decide who wins . Then they wonder why voter apathy is high. People have lost confidence in the pf ecz

  2. Another embarrassment in waiting for HH’s UPND!!!
    Am sure HH do not want to hear anything about elections!!!
    GO PF GO!!!

  3. I BELIEVE THIS TIME THE UPND LEADERSHIP WILL SEAT DOWN AND REASON WELL BY NOT INVOLVING THEMSELVES TO WASTE MONEY ON CAMPAIGNING BUT RE-ORGANIZING THEMSELVES TO GO FLAT OUT TO TELL PEOPLE THAT WE WILL STAND IN 2021. I AM APPEALING TO UPND THAT DONT GO OUT AND PLACE THE CANDIDATES IN THESE AREAS. PLEASE DO NOT PARTICIPATE IN THE BY-ELECTION BUT YOURS MUST BE RESERVED FOR 2021. WE NEED YOU IN 2021 AND NOT IN THESE CROOKED ECZ BY-ELECTIONS WHERE THERE IS BUYING AND SELLING OF CADRES/ COUNSELORS.

  4. We are all fade up with the so called by- elections which are full of corruption and wastage of National resources when the hospitals and schools have nothing.

  5. More working day weekends for the lazy one…expect also nothing visit by his old hen Ester giving out free groceries
