President Edgar Lungu finally speaks out over his eligibility – Video

For many weeks many have been questioning the eligibility of President Lungu for the upcoming elections. Lawyer Joseph Chirwa says after reading the judgement of the Constitutional Court, it is clear that President Edgar Lungu is eligible for 2021 because he has only served one term.

In an interview, Chirwa said the duration of President Lungu’s stay in office the first time he was elected does not constitute a term of office.

“After reading the judgment of the Constitution Court, [it] is [clear] that the President is eligible. The court was asked whether the time from 2015 to 2016 amounted to a term, the court ruled that, that was not a term. Based on the ruling of the court, I conquer with it that President Lungu is eligible to stand in 2021. I don’t know whether the President Lungu wants to stand or he doesn’t want, it’s up to him. This is a person who has already stood, he knows the political terrain, so instead of going to look for another candidate, he should be the one to stand,” said Chirwa.

The President has finally addressed these concerns today.Watch the video below..
