UPND MPs refuse to be addressed by Lungu

Filed under: Breaking News,Politics |

All Members of Parliament from the opposition UPND except Chilanga MP Keith Mukata Friday morning boycotted the State of the Nation address by President Edgar Lungu.


President Lungu arrived at the Parliament Building at 10:00 hours, but opposition Members of parliament were absent in the House, except Mukata who just joined UPND from the MMD last year.


The UPND has refused to recognise Lungu as President and may only do so if the Constitutional Court hears and determines who won the last elections.


The Constitutional Court refused to hear the presidential election petition due to the 14 days time lapses which is being disputed.
