The National Revolution Party (NR) has announced that Alex Chileshe, a local businessman, will be its candidate in the forthcoming Chilanga parliamentary by-elections. The party is yet to announce its preferred candidate to contest the Mpulungu seat.
NRP Secretary General Kelly Walubita Junior expressed confidence that the party would scoop the Chilanga seat because Mr. Chileshe is a resourceful youth.
Speaking in an interview with ZANIS in Lusaka Wednesday,
Mr. Walubita Jr. said Mr. Chileshe was picked after consultations with senior party officials that included party president Dr. Cosmo Mumba and National Chairman Peter Chisenga among others.
The MMD and UPND have already announced their candidates for the seat.
