The Patriotic Front -PF- has dismissed the observations of the Economic Intelligence Unit -EIU- , which has continuously stated that President Rupiah Banda and the MMD will win the September 20, general polls.
PF Secretary General Wynter Kabimba says the EIU is an imperialist sponsored organization, whose aim is to protect western companies which have invested in Zambia.
Mr Kabimba says the PF will not be disturbed by the publication’s observations because it has done its ground work ahead of next month’s elections.
He told ZNBC that the PF is a credible party which has managed to field Parliamentary candidates in all the 150 constituencies.
The Economic Intelligence Unit -EIU- says a victory for the opposition Patriotic Front-PF and its leader Michael Sata in the September 20 general elections poses a high risk for Zambia.
This is because of the uncertainty about the policy agenda that PF leader, Mr Sata will implement, citing his alleged indecision on issues like mining taxation.
Meanwhile, Mr Kabimba says the PF has produced evidence that the Universal Printing Group -UPG- of South Africa which has been awarded the contract to print ballots by the Electoral Commission of Zambia, is Corrupt.
Mr Kabimba says it is now up to the ECZ to act on the evidence which has been produced.
