PF backs UPND on Mufumbwe

  The Patriotic Front -PF says it will continue to rally behind its pact partner the UPND in the ongoing legal battle over the validity of the Mufumbwe parliamentary by-election results.

The PF says Mufumbwe is legitimately held by the UPND and that the party will rally behind its partner should there be a re-run of the election.This is contained in a statement released to ZNBC news and signed by PF Vice President Guy Scot and Party Spokesperson Given Lubinda. The Mufumbwe by-election results which declared UPND’s Elliot Kamondo as MP have been nullified following a petition by MMD’s Mulondwe Muzungu on grounds that the poll was characterized by violence.

The Supreme Court on last Friday granted Mr Kamondo an exparte order to stay the execution of the December 15 judgment which had nullified his election as MP.
