UPND accuse ECZ of disadvantaging the party by delaying the accreditation of polling agents

Feature Politics UPND accuse ECZ of disadvantaging the party by delaying the accreditation...

Acting United Party for National Development (UPND) Elections Chairperson, says the failure by the Electoral Commission of Zambia (ECZ) to adhere to the agreed date for the commencement of accreditation of polling agents is a PF ploy aimed at disadvantaging the UPND.

The ECZ had on 14th of this month indicated that it had on 1st of July commenced the accreditation of polling agents, but that when he made a follow to up to the ECZ over the issue, he was told that the Commission was still training its officers.

He charged that the ECZ’s insistence that the exercise would commence on Monday next week was evident that the Commission was accrediting PF “behind curtains”.

He called on Chief Electoral Officer, Patrick Nshindano to issue an instruction for Electoral officers in each district that nothing had changed over the agreed date for the commencement of the exercise.

He also appealed to issue a comprehensive statement regarding news making rounds on social media to the effect that polling agents would be required to have a COVID-19 certificate in order to be allowed inside polling stations.

  1. You have not even mentioned who this same f00Iish acting chairperson is. How you have someone acting in such a capacity this close to elections. It is because they couldn’t find one from that particular tribe

  2. A friend of mine from the UPND recently told me that they have already won the 2021 elections and will accept nothing less. My worry is that should they lose will they accept the results? I’ve distanced myself from openly discussing politics with UPND supporters because they get very furious if you are not with them. Most of them stopped talking to me and blocked me on social media after the 2016 election results. Is this being democratic? Am I not allowed to support another party? You are talking about ECZ but referring to PF?

  3. This cannot surprise anyone, not even the PF themselves because PF has always been putting the main opposition party in a disadvantaged position right from party mobilization, voter registration, campaigns, covid-19 restrictions etc etc. Now it is polling agents accreditation

  6. I don’t understand. How does the PF come in. Does the PF accredit polling agents? This same acting person without a name should tell his fellow T0ngas to be careful with social media. Look what social media has done to Chellah Tukuta.

  7. THE ECZ IS TRYING BY ALL MEANS TO DO THINGS THAT WILL FAVOR THE PF. AT THIS STAGE WE HAVE REACHED LETS REMAIN UNITED AND NOT GIVE THE ECZ A CHANCE TO MANUPLATE THE PROCESS. THE THINGS THEY ARE TRING TO DO TO FAVOR BA ONCE MIGHTY PF ARE ALWAYS FALLING APART. BA UPND ALLIANCE I SAY LETS WAKE UP, EVEN THOSE PROJECTIONS THEY ARE GIVING THAT PF WILL GET 60% ARE JUST DOSIERS YET THEY KNOW WON’T GET THOSE FIGURES. KBF AND OTHERS IN THE UOND ALLIANCE SHOULD NOT SLEEP BUT ACT FAST AND ENSURE THE ACREDITION EXERCISE IS DONE AS SOON AS POSSIBLE. THE STAFF AT ECZ HAVE BEEN CONDUCTING ELECTIONS FOR A LONG TIME AND WHICH TRAINING ARE THEY UNDER GOING AS BEING STATED BY PATRICK NSHINDANO? ECZ UNDER THIS MAN WILL GO DOWN IN OUR COUNTRY’S ELECTRAL PROCESS AS THE WORST CEO. ALL HIS STATEMENTS HAVE BEEN…

  8. For those of you with your negative comments about opposition, you are cowards, let there be a level playing field and whoever wins, wins. Too much mediocrity pa ZED
