THE MMD has declined to comment on overtures from the Patriotic Front (PF) to form an alliance ahead of the August 11, 2016 general elections.
MMD president Nevers Mumba said he would only comment after meeting President Lungu, especially to study the conditions attached to the intended alliance.
Dr. Mumba is currently in Western Province for party mobilization.
On Tuesday, President Lungu disclosed that he was exploring ways in which the Patriotic Front (PF) and the MMD could work together during the August 11 general elections.
“We have not discussed anything; there is an intention of request by the President but we have not had time to sit down to look at how we can actualize the process,” Dr. Mumba said.
He said the MMD has had no time to sit down to look at what was being proposed by the PF.
Dr. Mumba however could not confirm if the MMD was willing to have a pact with the PF, stating that it could only be revived after the two parties actualized the process.
“I cannot make a comment on the matter until we hear what the President has to say in person, we have to wait for the meetings where we have to talk about what is being proposed,
“It is just right for everyone to wait after the two parties have an official meeting before commenting on the matter,” Dr. Mumba said.
He said the MMD would issue a statement after the former ruling party and the PF discussed the matter.-Courtesy of Millennium Radio
