PF will follow ECZ guidelines on Grade 12 Certificate-Davies Mwila

Feature Politics PF will follow ECZ guidelines on Grade 12 Certificate-Davies Mwila

The ruling Patriotic Front (PF) party Secretary General Davies Mwila has said that the party will follow the guidelines of the Electoral Commission of Zambia (ECZ) requiring everyone standing for elective office to be in possession of a Grade 12 certificate or its equivalent.

Speaking at the party’s Lusaka Provincial Conference at the Mulungushi International Conference Centre yesterday, Mr Mwila said that only those who have the Grade 12 certificate.

Mr Mwila further said that the adoption of candidates to stand on the PF ticket will purely be on merit and that no one must be adopted on the basis of friendship, adding that those who were close to him and were using their proximity as a means for adoption will be disappointed as he does not want anyone to come to him and try to lure him to make a decision that will favour them.

Mr Mwila said all those who want to recontest their various positions on the party ticket will undergo a rigorous selection process as the party will not entertain those who did not work to the expectations of the people in their previous term.

He said those who did nothing in the previous five years will bid their positions farewell but that those who delivered will have nothing to worry about as they will still be re-adopted.

  1. We follow the rules without fear or favour. The upnd were celebrating thinking this rule will rule out many pf members from standing. They think they are the only educated ones. It is this type of arrogance which leads to them losing elections. It also shows that they have no hope in winning a fair election. They are hoping our people don’t stand because they know they can’t beat our team. BaflkaIa

  2. These Grade 12 Guidelines are Constitutional and apply to all elective offices including that of President. ECZ should publish its Guidelines for the Presidential Candidates. In particular we would like to see whether “A person elected twice as President is not eligible for re-election ” clause will be included in the Guidelines. In Tanzania, following the death of Magufuli they have managed their succession very well in terms of their Constitution. Zambia’s 2021 Elections should strictly be guided by the Republican Constitution. We don’t want confusion arising from an illegal and unconstitutional Third Term. ECZ and Concourt should respect and adhere to the Republican Constitution.

  3. PF DO YOU ACTUALLY KNOW THE MEANING OF GUIDE LINES
    LOOK IT UP IN THE OXFORD DICTIONARY AND GET A BETTER UNDERSTANDING
    WE DONT THINK IT WILL RULE OUT ANY PF MEMBERS OTHERWISE YOU WOULDNT HAVE BROUGHT IT IN
    WE NOT STUPID LIKE YOU THINK SOME OF US HAVE HALF A BRAIN WHILST MOST OF YOU HAVE ZERO BUT FRESH AIR

  4. Tell Your ECZ to stop changing goal posts,let them be organised for once,to all those who got letters from ECZ please make sure it has a water mark bearing thier log,a date stamp and letter head,these mangwamus wants to play tricks and buy time to disadvantage us
