The opposition Movement for Multi-party Democracy (MMD) has called on opposition parliamentarians to be alert and provide necessary checks and balances to the ruling Patriotic Front government.
MMD Deputy National Secretary Chembe Nyangu says it would be wrong for opposition parliamentarians to relax amid so many blunders by the patriotic front.
Recently, MMD Solwezi central Member of Parliament Lucky Mulusa said the relaxed attitude by Felix Mutati as leader of the opposition in parliament is suppressing progressive debates meant to assist the government.
Mr. Nyangu says the party will first have to study the matter for it to be handled appropriately.
He however said that if the reports are true, it would incorrect for Mr. Mutati, as leader of the opposition, to be relaxed because the opposition has a huge task to play in parliament.
