The UK based Economics Intelligence Unit says it expects the ruling Patriotic Front, led by the President, Edgar Lungu, to remain in power beyond 2021.
In its latest Country Report for Zambia dated June 12th 2019, the intelligence unit states that the baseline forecast remains that Mr. Lungu will win in 2021.
Although the report cited some challenges with the Zambian economy –many of which are not unique to this country, the Patriotic Font administration led by President Lungu has come up with appropriate and timely interventions.
The Report says in taking corrective measures such as the liquidation of KCM, President Lungu.
The Unit says Investor confidence is something that President Lungu has continued to pursue as evidenced by his commitment to ensuring that the mining sector continues to be under the ambit of the private sector.
The Economics Intelligence Unit says victory for President Lungu and the Patriotic Front is further assured in the absence of a credible opposition.
