Confusion has ensued in the Patriotic Front PF Party in Eastern Province where some alleged party members from Lusaka are conducting constituency elections in Chadiza and Vubwi districts.
This is being done without consent from PF Provincial Chairperson, Attan Mwamba.
Mr. Mwamba told Breeze News that he is aware that a group of people from Lusaka have come into the province to spearhead constituency elections in the two districts.
Mr. Mwamba has urged people in Chadiza and Vubwi not to take the elections seriously as the date for constituency elections in the two districts will be communicated soon.
He added that whatever constituency executive that the alleged PF election group has put in place will not be recognized by the party.
Mr. Mwamba says that the PF alleged election group is just aimed at bringing confusion in the party.
The Provincial PF Chairperson says he has contacted the PF secretariat in Lusaka who have also expressed ignorance on the alleged constituency elections in Chadiza and Vubwi.
He says that his party has maintained peace over the past years and will not allow anyone to bring confusion.
But Patriotic Front Chairman for elections, Musonda Mpakati says it is unfortunate that PF Provincial Chairman, Attan Mwamba has distanced himself from a group of people that is in the province to conduct constituency elections in Chadiza and Vubwi.
Mr. Mpakati told Breeze News that the PF elections committee has directed John Phiri and former Zambian Ambassador to Malawi, Charles Banda to conduct elections at constituency levels in Chadiza and Vubwi with consent from the provincial executive committee.
He says that the constituency elections that are being conducted in the two districts are real and have the blessings from the PF central committee.
