The Anti-Voter Apathy Project (AVAP) has called on the Electoral Commission of Zambia (ECZ) and the Zambia Police to remain uncompromising in ensuring that the electoral code of conduct is adhered to by all political parties participating in the February 25th Kasenengwa Parliamentary by-election.
The Kasenengwa Parliamentary seat fell vacant after the Supreme Court nullified MMD’s Victoria Kalima’s election.
AVAP Executive Director Richwell Mulwani says the ECZ, the Police and the Anti-Corruption Commission should enforce the electoral law by avoiding situations were some political parties take advantage by starting campaigns early before the due date.
Mr. Mulwani has told Qfm in an interview that the ECZ and the Police should especially watch-out for overzealous cadres who may want to abrogate the electoral law on the pretext of being drunk.
He says such kind of conduct interferes with the electoral process and should be condemned by all well-meaning Zambians.
Mr Mulwani states that his organization will continue monitoring how the electoral code of conduct will be observed by all political parties that will take part in the by-election.
