The United Party for National Development (UPND) has declared that it has sufficient ground to win this year’s elections even without its pact partners, the Patriotic Front.
UPND Secretary General Winston Chibwe says the UPND was formed as a political party with an intention to form government and that it has remained focused to its objective.
Mr. Chibwe explains in an interview with QFM that the party has continued to gain popularity.
He was reacting to UPND Luapula province Chairman Chishimba Chilufya’s Statement that the two opposition leaders Michael Sata and Hakainde Hichilema should resolve the issue of the pact presidency as the pact is the only solution to remove the MMD from government.
Mr. Chibwe maintains that UPND will only agree on the presidential candidate of the pact with the PF after the two parties meet to draw a national development plan.
He has since appealed to UPND members across the country to remain calm and continue campaigning for the party ahead of this year’s elections.
