Losing Patriotic Front (PF) presidential candidate Seleman Banda has called for unity in the ruling party ahead of the January 20, 2015 presidential elections.
In a statement made available to ZANIS in Lusaka today, Captain Banda said all PF members should support party president Edgar Lungu in order to win the presidential by-election next month.
“All well-meaning members of our mass party, PF and in upholding the rule of law should rally behind Honourable Lungu,” he said.
Capt. Banda noted that there can only be only one president at a time hence the need for PF members to remain united as a democratic party.
He said differences should not override the bigger picture of unity in purpose following the court ruling that Edgar Lungu was the duly elected president of the PF.
Capt. Banda has since charged that victory is certain for the PF come January 20, 2015 through Mr. Lungu as president.
