Acting Republican President Guy Scott says some of the candidates that have applied to contest for the PF presidency might be disqualified because of the parentage clause in the republican constitution.
Dr. Scott says it is a well known fact that he did not file in his nomination to contest for the PF Presidency because he is restrained by parentage clause.
Speaking during a press briefing at his office this afternoon, Dr. Scott says applications submitted on Tuesday and yesterday are still being checked for qualifications to ensure candidates are in compliance with the constitutional requirement.
Dr. Scott says all the candidates that do not qualify will not be allowed to contest on the PF ticket in order to avoid being taken to court in the name of injunctions days before elections.
And Dr. Scott has urged the media not to spark issues and portray an image that there is chaos in the country.
The Acting President says whatever is happening in the country is in the name of democracy stating that all individuals aspiring to stand are extremely expressing their democratic rights.
Meanwhile Dr Scott has announced that Bridget Atanga has been promoted as Acting PF Secretary General and Anthony Kasolo will be the Acting Deputy Secretary General.
pf This is because Mr Lungu who is PF Secretary General is among the presidential contenders.
