Vote counting at St Marys School during 2016 elections.

Lusaka District Electoral Officer Alex Mwansa says the routine verification of Ballot Paper Account Forms which started yesterday Saturday, 20th August, 2016, is progressing well.

Mwansa said the exercise which has also attracted monitors and observers, is expected to end on Tuesday, 23rd August, 2016.

He said the verification of Ballot Paper Account Forms is a normal process under the electoral Act No. 12 of 2006.

Mr Mwansa said all stakeholders, observers and monitors are invited to witness the verification exercise which starts at 08:00 hours at Nakatindi Hall.

This is according to a press statement issued by Lusaka Province Elections support center coordinator Brenda Katongola.

However, yesterday in Livingstone, the post-election verification of ballots paper account forms exercise was temporarily halted.

The UPND team led by one of the party’s Legal Counsels, Fred Chunga, requested for the suspension of the exercise in view of the petition that the party has filed in at the Constitutional Court.

ECZ – Head Office, Livingstone District Electoral Officer, Vivian Chikoti, informed the stakeholders of the suspension, awaiting further instructions from the ECZ Head Office.

  1. It does not make sense to do the verifying now which was denied during the elections. What evidence do we get from that?

  4. “He said the verification of Ballot Paper Account Forms is a normal process under the electoral Act No. 12 of 2006.” Illiterates say whatever comes from the stomach not the brain. It simply means they are required to perform this activity by the Act. UPND cadres will die of hallucinations and wishful thinking. WAIT THE CON COURT BURIES YOUR NONSENSE

  5. Please ECZ what Zambian need now isn’t recount of votes which will help no one but the formation of government of national unity. I suggest HH can be the VP and I can assure the good Zambian people this will be a win win situation for us all. The time to fight and waste precious resources is over but only national building. If this will work I suggest there will be no election petions for the MPs and counselors because it will be a source of conflict… God bless Zambia.

  6. No matter how EDUCATED a Bemba man gets he will ALWAYS feel INFERIOR to a Tonga man. The HISTORY of the mines where TONGAZ were their SUPERVISORS still lingers. Lawrence Katilungu a Unionist differed with Nkumbula for being second to a white man only Kapwepwe accepted him as his blood brother. We know their PSYCHOLOGICALLY fear. Sata got scared by removing Chirundu & Ite~Itezhi from Southern to weaken us forgetting that Lsk is TONGALAND as far as Chisamba. We are HARD WORKING people and we know the history of Zambia.We are PROUD Tongaz~Kachema.

  7. Chalo Bananga’s GNU suggestion is nosense. How can HH accept being VP to a visionless and clueless Lungu. So the idea by these PF cadres was to steal the vote and clamour for a GNU. HH should never accept to be led by a leader with no plan. GNU was tried in Zimbabwe and it never worked becoz of bickering among the GNU partners. If HH went into a GNU with the Panga Family it means he will become lawless and violent like PF. HH won this election and should be given a chance to implement the UPND 10 Point Plan. Period.

  9. Why verifying them now. After replacing them with other ballot papers to suit your claims.

    No matter what, our Heavenly Father is watching.

    The disgrace of PF will be humiliating.
