Constitutional court dismisses all UPND applications

The Constitutional Court has so far rejected each and every application made by the UPND. The jusges have also refused to hear 90 per cent of the evidence rhe UPND has.
According to the court, the UPND is always wrong while the PF is right all the time.

The Constitutional Court this afternoon threw out four applications by the UPND in which the party was, among other things, contending that concluding trial in the main petition by midnight would not be a trial and will violate Article 18 (9) of the Constitution.

The ConCourt also dismissed an application by the UPND in which they wanted the court to compel the Electoral Commission of Zambia and ZNBC to produce documents and news bulletins respectively which related to the allegations in the main petition for lack of merit.

The ConCourt comprising president Hildah Chibomba, judges Mungeni Mulenga, Margaret Munalula, Palan Mulonda and Anne Sitali went on to dismiss UPND’S application in which they wanted the latter to recuse herself from hearing its renewed application before the bench because she earlier heard the matter as a single judge.

In dismissing the application on judge Sitali, the court said she could hear the renewed application because it was not an appeal, adding that she heard the earlier application as a single judge.
