PF to petition four Copperbelt seats

THE ruling Patriotic Front (PF) on the Copperbelt says it will next week petition election results in the four rural constituencies it lost to the MMD last month.
The PF plans to petition election results for the Lufwanyama, Mpongwe, Masaiti and Kafulafuta parliamentary seats, according to the government controlled Daily Mail.
The PF won 18 parliamentary seats out of the 22 on the Copperbelt.
PF Copperbelt provincial chairman Rebby Chanda said in an interview in Ndola on October 6 that the ruling party has discovered irregularities in the election results for Mpongwe, Masaiti, Lufwanyama and Kafulafuta constituencies.
“There were a lot of anomalies in the election results of the four constituencies. We intend to petition the results by next week,” he said.
Mr Chanda also said the ruling party has devised a plan to reorganise itself in the four rural constituencies.
He said the PF will tour Mpongwe, Lufwanyama, Masaiti and Kafulafuta to strengthen its structures.
“We have made inroads but we want to strengthen our structures in the rural parts of the Copperbelt. In the next five years, we will be more popular and stronger in rural Copperbelt,” he said.
