OFFICIAL STATEMENT FROM DIPAK PATEL
23 January 2015
Due to the contradictory results published by the ECZ, on both their official ECZ website and on ZNBC, we have sought an urgent meeting with the ECZ to seek clarity on this morning.
Not only have there been significant miscalculations in the counting process, with the wrong numbers attributed to the wrong constituencies, some published numbers highly inflated and clear failure to calculate basic arithmetic. These incorrect figures have also now been published by the print media this morning, which is highly illegal.
Our results are increasingly clear and continue to indicate a narrow victory for the UPND. We require full clarity and agreement on all final ECZ results before any announcement is made by the ECZ.
The statements being made by PF spokesperson, Emmanuel Mwamba, are highly inflammatory and based on clear factual inaccuracies.
