Share

Patriotic Front (PF) Secretary-General Hon. Davies Mwila says the Party will announce its successful candidates to contest on the PF ticket in the August 12 general elections on the 17th of May 2021.

Speaking in Kabwe today when he addressed party officials and aspiring candidates from Central Province, Hon. Mwila explained that the Party has decided to announce successful candidates on the 17th of May to ensure that there is no vacuum in the Party after the adoption process.

He charged that the Party is aware that some of the aspiring candidates who will not be picked have intentions of contesting as independent candidates or on the opposition ticket in order to frustrate the Party.

” We are aware that some of the aspiring candidates who will not be picked want to contest as independent candidates or on the opposition ticket, but we will not give them that chance,” Hon. Mwila said.

The PF Secretary-General has since appealed to those that will not be adopted to remain loyal to the Party and support those that will be adopted.

Hon. Mwila reiterated that the PF will only pick popular candidates that that will win and maximize votes for President Lungu.
He also stated that the PF will only retain candidates that have performed during their tenure of office and those that have not worked for the people will not be adopted.

Meanwhile, Hon. Mwila has explained that the party will only adopt candidates that have a grade 12 certificate or its equivalent certified by the Examination Council of Zambia.

He charged that the party will not entertain applicants with other higher qualifications without a grade 12 certificate or its equivalent.
Earlier, the PF Chief Executive Officer addressed party officials and aspiring candidates in Lusaka Province where he also explained the adoption process.

  1. No one man is bigger than the party we fought hard to start and manage into a successful institution it has now become. Let them stand as independent if they think they are bigger than the party. We are ready to meet at the polls and may the best people win. Positions are not for life. Those that cling to positions are lazy and have not worked hard to invest into life after public office.

  2. Yawn. And who would be interested in a list of lazy corrupt people who are going to lose on August 12?

  3. Hey Kaizar Zulu, is munyelo Zulu on the list? You have a spoiled brat of a brother by that right?

  4. Well now that they know your tricks, the smart ones will get their supporters ready as well as documentation. Once not adopted, they will immediately proceed to file as independents. You also risk having some candidates failing to beat the deadline. It happened in 2016 to a former minister I believe.

  5. Hope you don’t plan to keep all applicants under lock & key before & after your announcement. Anything is possible these days.

  6. This is what PF calls democracy. Mwila and company have to choose who will stand for MP positions. Let them compete via elections instead of being handpicked.

  9. The sad part about politics in Zambia is that its become a game of opportunity…PF are publicly stating that unsuccessful candidates would have gone to opposition or stood as independent and the opposition would also gladly accommodate them. What surprises me is why would PF be afraid of its members not standing as independent if they have adopted the right candidates chosen by the local members? Answer is simple ..you are imposing wrong unpopular candidates on them.
    I know for a fact that this whole idea of last minute announcement is the brain child of no other than SG Mwila himself the man is still licking his wounds to losing that Chipili seat to an independent candidate Jewis Chabi 6 years ago to add salt the wound he fired Chabi when he was PS for Luapula….he learned a…

  10. “Legally, you can be elected president of the United States even if you didn’t go to college. The U.S. Constitution does not set forth any education requirements for presidents. But it’s a pretty extraordinary achievement for a president without a college degree to be elected today.”

    “What Is Taxation Without Representation?
    The phrase taxation without representation describes a populace that is required to pay taxes to a government authority without having any say in that government’s policies. The term has its origin in a slogan of the American colonials against their British rulers: “Taxation without representation is tyranny.”

    PF time out.

  11. Continued
    a….he learned a painful lesson and his time armed with his GCE Certificate and Degree he is not going to take any chances or surprises!

  12. Just wondering! What are the ECZ Guidelines for those seeking to contest the August 12, 2021 as Presidential Candidates? What do those ECZ Guidelines say to those who have been elected and sworn in twice before ? ECZ and Concourt must defend and protect the Republican Constitution in vetting the Presidential Candidates for the August 12, 2021 Elections to avoid confusion.
