PF Supporters Swarm Supreme Court Grounds Ahead of ConCourt Ruling
The mood at the Supreme Court grounds is expectant with Patriotic Front supporters draped in all green and white sprayed within and outside the premises waiting judgment in President Edgar Lungu’s 2021 eligibility case.
A full bench of the Constitutional Court is expected to render a political defining judgment that will set the tone for the 2021 elections.
A consortium of opposition political parties aligned to the Patriotic Front sought the Constitutional Court’s interpretation of the Constitution as regards the eligibility of President Lungu.
The argument is hinged on the premise that the first time President Lungu made the ballot in 2015 after President Michael Sata’s death he was merely completing the latter’s tenure and only assumed his full first term in 2016 during general elections.
Patriotic Front Secretary General is already in position within the court awaiting the judgment.
