Two Zambians have sought a court order to stop the Electoral Commission of Zambia-ECZ from conducting the 2016 Presidential Elections.
Richard Mumba and Wright Musoma have argued that President Edgar Lungu should serve a full term of five years before another Presidential election.
Mr Mumba of Chibombo District and Mr Musoma of Lusaka says that article 35 Sub-article one of the Zambian Constitution states that every President shall hold office for a period of five years.
The two have argued that President Lungu’s tenure will expire on 20th January 2020.
This is contained in a petition filed in the Lusaka High Court.
Mr Mumba and Mr Musoma want the court to determine whether or not President LUNGU has been discriminated by article 35 sub-articles one and four.
The two have sued the Electoral Commission of Zambia-ECZ as the first respondent and the Attorney General as the second respondent.
Mr Mumba and Mr Musoma have also sued President Lungu as the third respondent.
The two have further sued all the 2015 Presidential candidates as respondents.
They are being represented by Lusaka Lawyer Rabson Malipenga.
