Opposition National Restoration Party (NAREP) President, Elias Chipimo Junior says Patriotic Front (PF) Members of Parliament will face a huge task convincing the electorate in their respective constituencies to vote for them in 2016 after rejecting the motion that sought to urge Government to provide a roadmap for the enactment of a new constitution.

Mr. Chipimo has told QFM News in an interview that by voting against the motion, PF Members of Parliament lost the confidence of the people who elected them to represent them in Parliament.

He states that the ruling party MPs neglected to champion the interests of their electorates by choosing to vote in a partisan manner in order to please the PF leadership at the expense of the people who voted for them.

Mr. Chipimo has reminded the PF MPs that they have an obligation to meet the aspirations of the electorates above partisan interests.
