UPND to file motion in ConCourt to re-open presidential petition


The opposition United Party for National Development (UPND) says it will file a motion in the constitutional court to reopen its presidential Petition.

UPND leader Hakainde Hichilema says this is because the Constitutional Court has also entertained Patriotic Front (PF) Secretary General Davies Mwila’s application to set aside or reverse its ruling on Ministers who served beyond the dissolution of parliament in 2016.

Mr. Hichilema says he will instruct the UPND lawyers to reopen the election petition because the ConCourt has entertained an application by the PF Chief Executive Officer.

Meanwhile Mr. Hichilema has accused the ruling party of being shaken by the impeachment motion.

He says it is for this reason that the ruling party has continued delaying its process.
