Sata pleads with HH to revive pact, QFM radio reviews

The Patriotic Front has called for fresh negotiations with the United Party for National Development over the future of the UNPD/PF pact.
Sources have revealed to QFM that PF president Michael Sata this week met with UPND president Hakainde Hichilema to see if they can still work together.

Mr. Sata is said to have complained to the UPND president that some people close to him were advising him wrongly on the issue of the PACT.

The PF president is said to have written to the UPND requesting to have a fresh look at the electoral alliance of the two biggest political parties in the country.

Yesterday, senior members of the UPND met to discuss the letter written by the PF.

The UPND meeting which was held at the party’s secretariat and lasted for more than 9 hours resolved to give the PF conditions in order to enter into an alliance again.

The sources explained to QFM that the UPND will keep its doors open as long as the PF accepts the set out conditions.

Among other conditions include the economic agenda of the PACT government and the sharing of the government positions equally.

QFM news has also been told that UPND president Hakainde Hichilema has no problem with being the vice president as long as the most important issues concerning the nation are agreed upon.

Efforts to get a comment for the two camps failed by press time.
