President Lungu expresses concern at UPND’s refusal to accept results in all elections

President Lungu

President Edgar Lungu says he is concerned with the continued unwillingness by the UPND to accept election defeat. President Lungu says it is worrying that the UPND has never accepted results as being free and fair from the first time they participated in the country’s polls.

Speaking when he welcomed the African Union Observer Mission led by former President of Sierra Leone Ernst Bai Koroma at State House today, President Lungu said the UPND has frustrated efforts to create a level playing field such as amending the Public Order Act and are now crying foul by claiming to be victims.

President Lungu has complained of the UPND’s conduct of labeling all institutions of government as cadres of the ruling party.

Meanwhile, President Lungu has urged the mission to execute their mandate diligently and have a clear picture of the conduct of the opposition, unlike others who want to influence the outcome of the polls.

And Mr. Koroma said the AU mission will deploy 30 observers to all the 10 provinces of Zambia to monitor the polls and that its mandate is to ensure that peace, security, and democracy prevail during the polls.
