The opposition Forum for Democracy and Development (FDD) has charged that its candidate, Edith Nawakwi is the best person to take over from Late Republican President Michael Sata.
FDD Copperbelt chairperson Yotam Mtayachalo told Mano News in a walk-in interview that Ms Nawakwi has all it takes to make a republican president and move the nation forward.
Mr Mtayachalo has since appealed to the general public especially the womenfolk to rally behind Ms Nawakwi.
And Mr Mtayachalo has advised electorates in Northern Province to vote wisely.
He said having commemorated 50 years of independence, it is high time people started to critically analyze candidates in any given election.
