Lusaka, Copperbelt will make the tilt- Simutanyi

Political analyst Neo Simutanyi has observed that Lusaka and Copperbelt provinces will determine the outcome of the August 11th elections.
Dr Simutanyi notes that Luapula, Northern and Muchinga provinces might not record significant changes in the manner they voted during the 2015 presidential election.
He told QFM Radio that if the results of the 2015 presidential election reflected the mood of the electorate, there is a possibility that opposition has a better assessment now.
Dr Simutanyi says this means that the votes the ruling party got in the 2015 elections will reduce owing to the current factors.
Dr Simutanyi, however, maintains that the ruling PF and opposition UPND are the only two parties that can win the forthcoming elections in the first round.
He says this especially if the third placed political party fails to get 10 percent of the votes.
Outgoing President Edgar Lungu has drastically lost support in Lusaka and Copperbelt provinces.
