The opposition UPND says it is aware that the ruling PF and FDD want to enter into an alliance in an event that there is a rerun after the August 11th General Elections.
UPND Chairman for Rural Reconstruction and Development Moono Mapani says it is very clear from the way the FDD Leader Edith Nawakwi has been coming out on the opposition UPND that she will support the PF.

Mr. Mapani says there plan will not work as the UPND will win in the first round of the elections without going into the rerun.
He says Ms Nawakwi as the only female contender, should show respect to other contenders and not attack her opponents unnecessarily.

Meanwhile, Mr. Mapani has urged the police service to remain vigilant and ensure that they continue to bring to book culprits of political violence.
He says it is very clear that the police have been reluctant in arresting PF cadres perpetrating violence in the country and that this can be ended by the police if they act professionally.
