Forum for Democratic Alternatives (FDA) president Ludwig Sondashi has observed that the excessive powers vested in the Presidency have undermined the country’s democracy because they are dictatorial in nature.

Dr. Sondashi says it is because such excessive powers vested in the presidency that President Michael Sata has been able to deny the people of Zambia the opportunity to have a new constitution that reflects their aspirations.

Dr. Sondashi, who is a constitutional lawyer, has further observed that it is such same excessive powers enjoyed by successive Presidents that some of them could have engaged in corruption.

He says with chances of the country having a new constitution slowly diminishing, Zambians should demand that President Sata let go of the constitutional making process for it to proceed as scheduled.

Dr. Sondashi has however told Qfm News that being a constitutional lawyer he would have preferred that the country’s new constitution leaves the Head of State in a position where he does not engage in politics.
