Lungu to vote on Bill 10

Lungu to vote on Bill 10

Good morning Zambia,

While you were asleep, the PF were manoeuvring to have Bill 10 passed at all costs and were plotting to undermine every law and institution in Zambia.

Last night Speaker Patrick Matibini postponed voting on Bill 10 because his political party PF did not have enough MPs to force it through.

Among other things, the PF have agreed to take president Edgar Lungu to parliament to go and vote for Bill 10. According to PF, the president is a member of parliament and can vote.

Speaker Patrick Matibini and and the two Deputy speakers will also made to vote.

In Addition to this, the PF offered money and issued threats to named opposition MPs with view to force them to vote for Bill 10.

    The President cannot vote in Parliament otherwise it is against the principle of separation of powers. Remember he is the Head of the Executive and there are three arms of government. The Executive, the Judiciary and the Legislature.

    The action of gathering together as a group for a common purpose is what is called assembly. The common purpose here is to vote and debate. When the President is in attendance it becomes a National assembly and the purpose of this gathering changes, there is no voting or debates. In the National assembly everyone listen to what the President has to say. No debates, No voting.

There are no debates or voting on any issue rather than just listen to the Presidential speech.

    If the people mentioned have the right to vote in Parliament, let them vote. Bribing opposition politicians speaks to state of morality in this supposed Christian nation. What can you do? Let them be bribed, if that matters more to them than serving their constituents. All I can hope is that Zambians are informed and then vote wisely and not by tribe next time around.
