  3. It’s very clear for every to see by now that the PF has no clear cut strong hold. Nowonder it is easy to predict so early that UPND is the most likely part to win this year’s Presidential elections. What we may never know is which part will have the most number of seats in Parliament. If at all UPND wins with a few number of seats, it will be somehow difficult for them to rule this country.
