HH addressing his first rally in Itezhi Tezhi after his release from Prison

The voting pattern in Zambia has remained the same with two leading political parties maintaining their traditional support bases, a glance at the results from the local government elections from different parts of the country held today show.

The ruling party, Patriotic Front (PF) has maintained it’s support base in the central, Copperbelt and Northern part of the country while the leading opposition UPND remain strong in the North-West and South of the country.

The two parties each got almost half of the country in the last election which the Patriotic Front won with just 4% which the opposition disputed.

Forinstance results from today’s elections:

In Kabwe, central province in Bwacha Constituency, Chililalila ward from all the 5 POLLING STATIONS.
PF-653
UPND-228
INDEPENDENT-164.

On the Copperbelt province in Luanshya the Patriotic Front has scooped Chitwi Ward local govt council seat by Polling 682, whilst UPND polled 88, while Rainbow could only manage 43.

While in Itezhi Tezhi constituency which was moved from Southern province to Central province, the UPND still comands support.

    • where is sense in this nosense? Why should everyone vote for PF or UPND? If that was the reasoning behind elections, then it would be pointless to be having them. thats why I keep wondering whether there is anyone normal in the PF.

    • In any democracy parties have strongholds. What I like about people from South and North west in particular is that they dont change their idelogical stand just to go and EAT. They have stood by what they believe in and please dont insult them by simplifying their ideology to mere tribe. In UK once a Tory always a Tory, once a Labour always a Labout and in USA oce a Democrate always a Democrate and once a Republican always a Republican. Here in Zambia, one will be an MMD Die Hard in the morning and PF Die Hard in the afternoon.

      • They have strongholds indeed but these strongholds are not tribal. In Africa we all know that Tribal division only leads to genocide. Check Rwanda, check Kenya Why are you trying to blind yourself to reality?

  3. UPND never give up and continue talking to people peacefully. Help now to see that development goes everywhere for all Zambians unlike now where we can see with our very eyes selective development by PF leaders. God have mercy on us Zambians.

  5. This language of ‘voting pattern’ is just nonsense! Every politician and their party anywhere in the world have their strong hold in some part of their country.

    We should not ignore the fact that Southerners and Northerners were voting partners at some stage in our political history. To expect that HH or Edgar should be popular on both sides of the voting coin is coloqual thinking. Let’s get our language right gentlemen.

  8. SO MUzamvela ba upnd ati we dont recognise ma results the by-elections were not free and fair. Am sure now the truth is coming out! when we say UPND is only in 3 provinces busy refusing. anyway no matter what the reality will still remain the same until upnd accepts that they need to broaden their horizon.
