President Edgar Lungu says he will not go against the decision of the Zambian people in next year’s presidential election.

Lungu says, he being a democrat; if Zambians no longer have confidence in him by the way of voting him out of power, he will gracefully step down.

Meanwhile, in a statement issued by his Special Assistant for Press and Public Relations Isaac Chipampe, the President said he did not say he will remain president whether Zambians like it or not as reported in one tabloid newspaper.

Lungu said he has found it disturbing that some sections of the media misquoted him when he held public rallies in Kasama, alleging that he vowed to stay put as the Republican President despite the fact that the people would have voted him out.

Chipampe said the President instead stated that he is President whether his opponents like it or not and that if anything happened to him, his Constitutional successor is Vice President Inonge Wina.

Chipampe said president Lungu is a democrat who respects the will of the people.

The President has urged all journalists to strictly adhere to their professional ethics to avoid plunging the country into chaos.
