A number of Patriotic Front, PF councilors in Chipata district have expressed interest in contesting the position of Deputy Mayor tomorrow.
PF district chairperson, Peter Msimuko, who confirmed this to Breeze FM, says that the civic leaders have a democratic right to contest the seat.
He, however, says that the party is this afternoon meeting all its councilors to among other things, discuss tomorrow’s elections for deputy mayor.
He says currently, there is no preferred candidate, but that during the district party meeting, members will resolve whether to come up with one name, or allow councilors to compete.
Chipata district only has one councilor from the opposition MMD, with the rest coming from PF.
