RB should be left to decide election date-Shikapwasha

Chief Government Spokesperson Ronnie Shikapwasha says there is nothing wrong with President Rupiah Banda’s delay in announcing the polling date.
Shikapwasha, who was reacting to a statement by Southern Africa Centre for the Constructive Resolution Of Disputes (SACCORD) Executive Director Lee Habasonda who said the head of sate should announce the election date to level the political playing field said the President should be left alone to decide as he has every right to do so.
he further said those calling for early polls are doing it out of ignorance and are not following the constitution as it states that the country’s leader has the power to announce the election date at what ever time he feels the nation is ready.
