Leading opposition leader Hakainde Hichilema has charged that there is going to be no third term of office for President Lungu.

The Constitution Court today ruled that President Lungu is eligible to stand for elections in 2021.

But Hichilema or HH as he is commonly called says the people have a role to protect the constitution.

“This is because when courts fail to protect citizens, the citizens, have the power to map their own destiny through people power,” stated HH.

Below is statement:

PRESS STATEMENT FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE.

NO THIRD TERM.

07/12/2018.
___________________________

We have noted the Constitutional court’s decision to give Mr Edgar Chagwa Lungu a possible third term office and participate in the future elections.

Using our collective skills, we are examining this decision carefully and will inform the nation of our detailed reaction in due course.

For now, we would like to clearly state that no one is entitled to a third term of office as President of this country.

This is because when courts fail to protect citizens, the citizens, have the power to map their own destiny through people power.

At the same time we would like to remind those who want more than what the constitution states that before even talking about a third term, they must check themselves on their capacity to deliver jobs, better health care, food and and a resounding economy supported by constitutionalism.

For us it’s Zambia and Zambians first.

And remember; people power! Our power! Our land.

Hakainde Hichilema
UPND President.

  3. If we are talking of a short term which ECL took, it happened under the old constitution. The old constitution has nothing of what the Constitutional Judges said. The issue of President Lungu’s term did not happen under the new constitution, why then rely on the new constitution for issues that took place under the old constitution? The old constitution is more clearer. Apresident elected twice is not eligible to run for the third time.Period.
