The ruling party, Patriotic Front (PF) has announced the dates for the intra-party elections.
In a press release on Thursday, PF Secretary General Davies Mwila announced the dates for elections for all the Provinces at ward, constituency and district committees.
LUSAKA, ZAMBIA, 9th August 2018 – Patriotic Front Secretary General Hon Davies Mwila wishes to announce dates for intra-party elections. This is in line with provisions of the Republican Constitution which sets a requirement for political parties to hold free and regular elections. The announcement is also in line with PF’s commitment to ensure those elected to office in the Party subject themselves to renewal of their mandate by those forming the electoral college and that other members in good standing with the Party can be provided an opportunity to aspire for elective positions.
Hon Mwila has therefore announced as follows:
*Party elections in Lusaka District for Ward, Constituency and District Committees will be held on the following dates:*
Wards 01st -14th September 2018
Constituency 15th – 26th September 2018
District 29th September 2018
*Party elections for Central, Copperbelt, Eastern, Luapula, Muchinga, Northern, Southern and Western Provinces will be held on the following dates:*
Sections 08th-21st September 2018
Branches 22nd September – 5th October 2018
Wards 6th – 19th October 2018
Constituencies 20th October – 2nd November, 2018
Districts 3rd-8th November, 2018
The Secretary General has since advised that the dates for the Provincial Conferences shall be communicated accordingly. However, the election guidelines will be sent to the respective organs and has since called on the structures to organize themselves in readiness for the elections.
Hon Mwila has also called for unity of purpose as the Party conducts the upcoming intra-party elections.
