Seven Patriotic Front provincial committees have called on the Central committee to consider nominating a presidential candidate rather going for a convention.

The Committees says this is because the party has no resources and time to go for a party convention to choose a presidential candidate.

And PF Copperbelt Province Chairlady, HILDAH KAWESHA says the central committee should nominate a leader that late President MICHAEL SATA preferred to be president.

Meanwhile, eight provinces have endorsed PF Secretary General, EDGAR LUNGU as the preferred presidential candidate for the forthcoming coming presidential elections.

Among the provinces are Eastern, Northern, North western, Copperbelt, and Central provinces.

And PF Muchinga province chairperson, MWANSA KAPEYA says the province will supports the decision that will be arrived at by the central committee.

Mr KAPEYA says the next president should continue with the late president MICHAEL SATA’s vision to develop the nation.

Meanwhile Patriotic Front youth from KAFUE today carried placards declaring support for Secretary General EDGAR LUNGU as the party’s Presidential candidate.

Youth Chairperson CATHBERT MULENGA said Youths from Kafue will not cordon the cartel because it will destroy the party.
