The Zambia police says it has not received any formal request to investigate FODEP president Dr Alex Ngoma for being in possession of a ballot paper at the Universal Printing Company in Durban South Africa.
Inspector General of Police Francis Kabonde says the police are ready to investigate the matter if formally requested by the Electoral Commission of Zambia-ECZ.
Mr Kabonde was speaking in an interview with ZNBC News in Lusaka on Monday.
Dr Ngoma was found in possession of a ballot paper in the printing plant even after the printers had announced that no one was allowed to take away any ballot paper.
The incident led to the expulsion of Dr Ngoma from the observer team by the Electoral Commission of Zambia.
The decision was however reversed with, ECZ Public Relations Manager Cris Akufuna announcing that investigations had shown that there was no ill intent on the part of Dr Ngoma to get the ballot paper.
