NEW CONGRESS PARTY DEMANDS CANCELLATION OF WARD BY-ELECTION AFTER CANDIDATE RESIGNED AND WITHDREW

The New Congress Party has demanded for the Electoral Commission of Zambia to cancel the Kapamba Ward by-election after the withdrawal of their candidate.

The Party has demanded for ECZ to follow the law as provided in Article 52(6) which states that;

“Where a candidate dies, resigns or becomes disqualified in accordance with Article 70, 100 or 153 or a court disqualifies a candidate for corruption or malpractice, after the close of nominations and before the election date, the Electoral Commission shall CANCEL the election and require the FILING OF FEESH NOMINATIONS by eligible candidates and elections shall be held within thirty days of the filing of the fresh nominations.

Below is the letter.

Dear Sir / Madam,

CANCEL THE KAPAMBA WARD BY-ELECTIONS

Reference is made to the letter dated 11th, January, 2024 and the letter of
resignation from our party candidate Patrick Sichula,
subsequent letter of withdrawal witten to the ECZ Chairperson dated 15th January, 2024 as attached herein.

With due respect of above captioned subject matter, the New Congress Party wishes to
confirm that we are at loss and pain over the resignation / withdraw of our candidate who is now former member of our party and hereby request your esteemed office to invoke article 52 of the Republican Constitution to grant us justice by canceling the
Kapamba ward By-elections and call for fresh nominations so that we exercise our democratic right to fill a new candidate.

Your consideration and quick response will be highly appreciated.

Yours Faithfully,

New Congress Party

Pastor Peter Chanda

  1. That’s the spirit!
    Zambia shouldnt allow Hakainde’s sham elections on its soil.
    We can’t be taken back to the one party state useless Mingalatos. Let us show him that we can play his game too, and better. The electoral system is in complete disarray because of Hakainde’s Mingalatos.
    The man has failed to organize a decent bye election from the time he came into power..If he can fail to organize a simple Ward bye Election, can this man manage a Presidential and General Election?
    The sooner he is put in check , the better, otherwise 2026 will be a disaster.
