Share

President Edgar Lungu has assured diplomats accredited to Zambia that the country will hold transparent, fair and credible elections in line with the Constitution of the Republic of Zambia.

President Lungu said Government would soon start sending invitations to more foreign organisations to take part in election observer missions.

He said two delegations from COMESA and the European Union were already in the country with a planned meeting with the opposition UPND today as part of observing the 2021 national polls.

The Head of State reiterated his gratitude for the support that members of the diplomatic corps continued to render to him and the country at large.

President Lungu said this at State House in Lusaka today during a virtual meeting with diplomats accredited to Zambia.

Earlier, Foreign Affairs Minister Joseph Malanji said that the COVID pandemic had posed a challenge which led to the change in the way of doing things.

  1. Can’t believe that idyot Malanje is still working.
    This time don’t keep ministers working after Parliament is closed in 3 weeks.

  2. The elections will definitely be better than the ones that were held in Zamunda last year. Someone filed in every court in the US to challenge a Biden win. Hopefully Zambia’s democracy is more mature now. kikiki

  3. There will be some election mishandlings ,late openings/missed deadlines and intimidation of election officials and voters .Lungu is blind to these elections trustworthiness.

  4. Useless Lungu is lying. Don’t buy into his lies. Also make sure the crooks at ECZ are monitored 24/7

  5. Would you trust a thief. This drunkard stole a widows money. It’s all in the open.
    LAZ suspended his licence.

    The fukker has looted and amassed wealth at unprecedented levels.

    Can’t trust him one bit. What a plonker and a hypocrite.

  6. If it was satire I’d get the headline.
    It’s not the President’s job to assure anyone that the election will be free and fair but the job of the Electoral Commission.
    Should the election be found not to be free and fair then he because of the assurances he’s wrongly give be held accountable and not ECZ, courts and Zambia Police. Also, contextually this can be taken as political intimidation.

    Fintu fimo one just has to say I can’t comment on that.

  7. THIS IS REALLY LAUGHABLE FROM THE VERY START IT IS ONE SIDED AND TOTALLY UNFAIR
    DIPLOMATS ARE NOT STUPID AND SOME EVEN HAVE STAFF CHECKING SOCIAL MEDIA SITES

    YOU CANT FOOL ZAMBIANS ALL THE TIME

  9. For that statement to be credible, REMOVE ESAU CHULU WHO DECLRARED FALSE RESULTS IN LUNDAZI IN 2016. To maintain Esau Chulu at ECZ is to be untruthful to the diplomats and the International community.

  10. Lungu should just stay quiet coz he’s a participant .This is like Lionel Messi assuring the refs of a fair game yet he’ll pull all dirty tricks to win.

  11. You can’t preside over any credible elections. Your insistence to be on the ballot is already in violation of the Constitution, so whom are you trying to mislead?

  12. The upnd babies are now sheeting their pants because they know its game over. We have even invited the Europeans they cry for to come and witness them losing to a patriotic party right here on zambian soil. These baboons think that seer1 will vote for them hahaha
