The Electoral Commission Zambia (ECZ) today met Tourism Minister Sylvia Masebo to discuss the incident that happened during the filing of nominations for the Kapiri Mposhi by elections on March 28.
ECZ Public Relations Manager Crispin Akufuna said Mrs. Masebo informed the Commission that she had no intentions of disregarding the law or the authority of the Commission and regretted what happened.
Mr. Akufuna has since advised all registered political parties and their members to familiarise themselves with the electoral laws concerning nominations in particular and elections in general in order to ensure adherence to the law by all stakeholders during elections.
This is according to a media statement released to ZANIS in Lusaka today.
Mrs Masebo who is also Patriotic Front (PF) Chairperson for Elections is alleged to have violated the electoral code of conduct when she together with a group of PF cadres invaded the nomination centre during the filling of nominations for the Kapiri Mposhi by elections.
