NDC will continue Fielding its own Candidates, it is not in any Electoral Pact-Kambwili

Feature Politics NDC will continue Fielding its own Candidates, it is not in...

THE National Democratic Congress (NDC) says it will continue fielding its own candidates for elections because there is no electoral pact with the United Party for National Development (UPND) or any opposition alliance members.

NDC leader Chishimba Kambwili said in an interview NDC as an independent political party would continue fielding its own candidates for elections because it was not in electoral pact with other opposition parties including the UPND. He said the alliance had not reached an agreement on the electoral pact.

“We have not reached an agreement on the electoral pact to discuss electoral matters. What we have is an alliance and the two are totally different,” Mr Kambwili said.

He said alliance members were free to field their own candidates in elections.

Mr Kambwili however said his party was enjoying a cordial relationship with the UPND.

“I have spoken to (Stephen) Katuka who is very close to me and can never say such a thing and I have spoken to HH.  He has denied issuing any statement against me,” Mr Kambwili said.

Mr Kambwili said NDC and UPND were enjoying a good relationship because they were in an alliance.

  1. Lusaka Times whats happening to your website….we cant even read articles just way too man annoying pop ups and nonsense

  2. Any Jim and Jack can field candidate but only real men can win elections. Lusaka times you are disappointing me with how pathetic your website has become of late. If you are failing to manage this platform let us know so that we can give you an offer and manage it well. Kz

  3. Seriously I respect Kambwili more than GBM.
    DP and Socialist Parties should also be fielding MP candidates please.
    Democracy will be much better under UPND because they are being respective to other opposition parties.
    Don’t be surprised if Mmembe, Kalaba, Msoni, Kambwili and Ester Lungu feature in the in-coming UPND government.

  4. This is a good strategy. The UPND and other opposition parties especially the NDC need to gauge from the by-elections results if they are grabbing voters from the PF in their strongholds
    If the NDC starts grabbing voters from the UPND, then its not helping the opposition.

    • Good idea by both UPND and NDC, we need to gauge if NDC has taken a piece of its own from pf , and if UPND is gaining ground in areas that once voted for pafu.

  5. @ Tarino Orange yes indeed very cheap website and it has now become useless….notice very few bloggers because of annoying adds and useless pop ups

THEY ARE NOT CAPABLE OF FORMING A GOVERNMENT IN ZAMBIA BECAUSE THEY ARE TOO TRIBAL, UNDEMOCRATIC WITH A WAMUYAYA PRESIDENT! SO THOSE WHO THINK BECAUSE OF THE ECONOMIC PROBLEMS ZAMBIA IS GOING THROUGH THEN UPND IS GOING TO WIN IN 2021! YOU ARE DAY DREAMING MY BROTHERS AND SISTERS IN UPND! IT WILL NOT HAPPEN! YOUR GOD-GIVEN-HH IS ONE OF PEOPLE RESPONSIBLE FOR THE ECONOMIC PROBLEMS WE ARE IN FROM THE PRIVATIZATION ERA OF THE EARLY 1990S. SO WHY SHOULD H COME BACK NOW AND BLAME OTHER PEOPLE! HE ENRICHED HIMSELF FROM THE PRIVATIZATION LEAVING MILLIONS ZAMBIANS SUFFERING AND DYING ANGUISH! ITS NOT GOOD TO TAKE ADVANTAGE OF SITUATIONS! WHEN SATA DIED YOUR HH WAS SURE HE WOULD WIN, TAKING ADVANTAGE OF SATA’S DEATH,…
