Transparency International Zambia has called for a considerable turnaround in the country’s the political environment.
Speaking to Q fm in an interview, Transparency International Zambia President, Reuben Lifuka says there is concern that the current political environment in the country has the potential to contribute to voter apathy during the 2011 elections.
He says there is need for political party leaders to raise the standards of their political debates as opposed to insulting and name calling.
Mr. Lifuka has further appealed to political parties in the country to ensure that they concretize their ideas while concentrating on basing their messages on real issues affecting the people at the grassroots level.
He adds that political parties must put in their best to sell themselves to the electorate instead of showering each other with unprofitable political language.
