A Caucus of PF law makers from the copper belt yesterday resolved to endorse Republican President Edgar Lungu as the PF presidential candidate for the 2021 general elections.

The MPs, who met at Chrismar Hotel in Lusaka, disregarded the fact the eligibility of Lungu is under contention in the courts of law and decided that they would rally behind him for 2021.

“This evening the Caucus of Patriotic Front (PF) Copperbelt Members of Parliament convened at Chrismar Hotel, Lusaka, and pledged their support for President Edgar Lungu as the PF Party Presidential candidate for 2021 elections,” stated Dr Chanda.

“The Caucus of MPs also resolved to mobilise the Patriotic Front party by working with the Party President who is President Lungu, Party Vice President Mrs Inonge Wina, Party Secretary General Hon. Davies Mwila, the PF Central Committee, and Copperbelt Provincial, District, Constituency, Ward and Branch officials.”

The MPs also called for unity in the party in the province.

“The MPs also called for Unity among all MPs and all PF party structures on the Copperbelt province to ensure that it remained a PF stronghold as it has been for the past 5 elections since 2006. The MPs pledged to support the PF party to organise public rallies across various districts and to lobby for development from government so as to fulfill the electoral promises made to residents of the Copperbelt province in all constituencies.

“The Caucus also ushered in new leadership by reconfirming Mufulira Central MP Hon. Dr. Evans Chibanda as Chairman, Bwana Mkubwa MP Hon. Dr. Jonas Chanda as Secretary, and Ndola Central MP Hon. Emmanuel Mulenga as Treasurer.”
