Constitutional court says petition to be conducted in one day

The Constitutional court has ordered that the main petition be heard today up to midnight.

And Concourt has dismissed UPND’s application to refer for interpretation to the High Court the issue of the 14 days for lack of merit.

But UPND lawyers have responded that they raised the issues of inflation of the votes because Edgar Lungu challenged them to provide evidence in his answer to the main petition.

Meanwhile, the UPND has applied that ZNBC avails them all 19 hours news bulletins from may 5 to August 11 because they need to refer to them in their evidence.

The Matter has stood down for 5 minutes to enable PF lawyers to respond to the new applications.

Further, the court insists there isn’t much time because the trial has to be concluded by 23.43 hrs.
