President Lungu will win the August 11 presidential election with a resounding victory because of the massive infrastructure development taking place across the country, says PF secretary general Davis Chama.
Mr Chama said PF government had managed to transform Zambia in the four years it has been in office and assenting to the 50 +1 vote clause would not in any way affect the outcome of the elections.
“Based on what we have done in the short period of time under four years in terms transforming the country, we are confident that first round knockout, will be a 60 percent or 70 percent win,” he said.
Mr Chama was speaking when he addressed journalists in Solwezi yesterday after he concluded his mobilisation tour of North-Western Province.
He however said the 50+1 clause maybe be a costly undertaking for the country in future in an event that there will be no outright winner.
He said the Zambian people had always demanded for a 50 + 1 vote clause and a presidential running mate to be voted alongside the president.
Mr Chama said it was sad that Rainbow Party presidential candidate Wynter Kabimba had accused the PF of failing to deliver a people-driven constitution.
He said President Lungu was a servant of the people and followed what his masters demanded by signing the new constitution which contained progressive clauses to bring to an end to the debate on the constitution which had been there for some time.
Mr Chama said Zambians must now concentrate on finding solutions to the problems facing the country such as high unemployment levels and industrialisation.
“It’s is shameful that we are importing nearly everything, we need to revolutionise the way we do things as a country by diversifying our economy,” Mr Chama said.
