ECZ bows to SDA’s pressure

The Electoral Commission of Zambia has postponed the Chilanga and Mpulungu by-election.

The by-elections which were slated for Saturday, 30th, 2010, have been postponed to Monday, 25th October, 2010.

This follows concerns from various stakeholders that elections on a Saturday would disfranchise the seventh day Adventists from voting.

This is also in consideration with the examination timetable of the ministry of education.

The election campaigns will therefore end on Sunday, 24th October at 18:00 hours.

This is contained in a press statement released to Q fm and signed by ECZ public relations manager, Chris Akufuna.
