Lawyer accuses ECZ of tampering with presidential nomination forms

Lusaka Lawyer John Sangwa has raised a preliminary petition to compel the Electoral Commission of Zambia to amend the new form of affidavit sworn by Presidential candidates.

Sangwa has argued that the new version of Affidavit for Presidential Candidates/Running Mate has omitted or neglected to include the mandatory requirement of Article 106(3) which compels respondents to swear that ; “I have not twice held office as President”.

He has called on the Constitutional Court to compel the ECZ to reinstate this provision as it was a constitutional requirement for the eligibility of presidential candidates to contest in the election.

    Judge Chulu is a tribalist.

    But why are these people behaving as though they are running their own institution? Thanks to John Sangwa SC for putting up such fighting spirit for voiceless Zambians.

    ECZ, PF and Lungu know full well that Lungu has held Presidential
    office twice already and he does not qualify to stand again.

    ECZ is not an independent body but a PF organ intent on rigging the elections for PF and Lungu. ECZ is not a fair and neutral player in these elections. They are the election riggers.

    We are a bunch of jokers! So chuulu and his minions think that there are no records of past affidavits for the courts to compare with and prove that he has tempered with a national document?

    This man is a danger to national peace!!
