General News Sesheke by-election ballot papers in

Ballot papers for the February 12, 2019 Sesheke central parliamentary and seven other local government by-elections have arrived in the country from Dubai in the United Arab Emirates (U.A.E).

The Emirates plane carrying the ballot papers touched down at Kenneth Kaunda International Airport at about 14:40 hours yesterday.

On hand to witness the arrival of and receive the ballot papers were Electoral Commission of Zambia (ECZ) officials, members of the ruling Patriotic Front (PF), opposition United Party for National Development (UPND) members and officers from Zambia Police among others.

Speaking in an interview with ZANIS, PF vice chairperson for elections committee Brain Katunsa praised ECZ for ensuring that the election process was transparent.

Mr. Katunsa said ECZ’s decision to encourage stakeholder participation in the process was good.

He also expressed happiness with the peaceful manner in which the political parties have been conducting themselves.

He has meanwhile expressed confidence that the ruling party will scoop the seat, adding that it is the only party that can foster development in all parts of the country.

And UPND representative Obert Shibeenzu said it was gladdening that the ECZ has so far exhibited transparence in the way it has conducted the process.

Mr. Shibeenzu hoped that all political parties would continue to conduct themselves in a peaceful manner and ensure they adhere to the electoral code conduct.

Among the political parties participating in the Sesheke central parliamentary by-election are UPND and the PF.

The by-election in Sesheke was necessitated by the death of the Member of Parliament Frank Kufakwandi in November 2018.

On the same day, seven local government by-elections will be conducted in Anoya Zulu ward in Chililabombwe, Munyama ward in Kabwe, Mkomba ward of Lundazi district, Chindwale ward of Katete, Chinkutila ward in Chifunabuli, Nkombwa ward in Isoka and Sewe Mungole ward of Chavuma district.
