Filed under: Breaking News,Politics |

The Electoral Commission of Zambia (ECZ), the MMD and ZNPHI are this morning expected to discuss the conduct of political parties when campaigning amidst the Covid-19 third wave in Zambia.

The electoral body recently suspended campaign rallies before an August 12 election, as daily new confirmed coronavirus cases surged.

Political parties should use alternative methods of campaigning that avoid crowds, Electoral Commission of Zambia Chief Electoral Officer Kryticous Nshindano said.

He promised that the election will go ahead as planned unless a state of emergency is declared.

Meanwhile, ECZ is an independent and autonomous electoral management body (EMB) mandated by Article 229 of the Constitution of Zambia to conduct elections.

The primary goal of the Electoral Commission to deliver a credible electoral process is achieved.

Apparently, as parties hit the campaign trail, worrying incidents, like violence, crowding have been registered.
