Matero Member of Parliament Miles Sampa has applied for a stay of execution on the consent judgment which declared Edgar Lungu as duly elected Patriotic Front President.
In his affidavit in support of summons filed by his lawyers in the High Court registry today, Mr Sampa contends that if the consent judgment is not stayed, Mr Lungu will proceed to file his nomination as Patriotic Front presidential candidate.
Mr Sampa says this is considering that Mr Lungu has an adoption certificate.
The Supreme Court yesterday referred back to the High Court the matter in which Mr Sampa has challenged the declaration of Mr Lungu as the duly elected PF president.
This is order to allow Mr Sampa to apply to be joined to the consent judgment which declared Mr Lungu as the sole PF presidential candidate.
