PF members of the Central Committee have agreed to suspend debate over the mode of adopting a Presidential candidate until all Presidential aspirants file in nominations.
PF Chairperson for elections Sylvia Masebo says once the presidential aspirants are known, party President Dr Guy Scott will then hold a meeting with the presidential hopefuls with a view of rallying behind one candidate who will go unopposed.

Ms Masebo who is also Chongwe Member of Parliament says this means that the party can avoid going for the general Conference.

She says if this is option fails, Dr Scott will then consult the Law Association of Zambia or a group of lawyers members of central committee will deem fit to interpenetrate the party constitution with regard to how a presidential candidate can be adopted.

Ms Masebo says at the moment some members of the party contend that the MCC can amend rules and regulations and therefore allow for a candidate to be adopted by the central committee instead of the General Conference.

She however says that Acting President Guy Scott does not want to do short cuts in adopting a presidential candidate to run for President in the forth coming Presidential elections.




  1. Who should choose the presidential aspirant. 59 people or 600. Our position is that if Mr Edgar lungu is popular as claimed by his cadres then he should test his popularity at the general conference. At the general conference neither the cartel or the clique have influence. In fact intelligence information seems to indicate that GBM is the most popular forward by Given then Mulenga Sata. That is why the clique does not want the conference. Its calculus by parts.

  2. Thus what is expected from mature people. press the like button if you agree that the central committee has made the right decision than what scott was thinking.
