Lungu meets unsuccessful aspiring candidates

By Nation Reporter

PRESIDENT Edgar Lungu yesterday met Patriotic Front (PF) aspiring parliamentary candidates whose applications to stand on the ruling partys ticket were unsuccessful and expressed humbleness his gratitude with the manner with which the aspirants accepted their setbacks to serve Zambians at the National Assembly.

The President told the aspirants that he was greatly humbled that the contenders accepted their setback with humility and that he was happy that they had pledged their continued loyalty to the ruling party.

Special assistant to the President for press and public relations Amos Chanda said President Lungu was confident that the PF was headed for a landslide victory considering that the ruling party had emerged united and stronger after the cut-throat competition among the aspiring candidates.

Mr Chanda said the Head of State told the aspirants never to lose hope as the PF was certainly bouncing back to power and that there would be many opportunities for most of them both in Government and in the ruling party.

He said the President encouraged those who were unsuccessful to put the tension of the adoption process behind and concentrate on ensuring campaigning for the ruling party.

Mr Chanda said President Lungu said the tension that had griped the PF during the selection process had brought out the positive side of the party and that with the adopted candidates, the President was confident that  he was going to have the majority MPs in Parliament after the August general elections.
