UPND petitions Lungu’s victory

Filed under: Breaking News,Politics |

The UPND has filed in a petition before the Constitutional Court challenging the declaration of Edgar Lungu as winner of the August 11 presidential election.

The opposition party has taken the country completely by surprise with this move, having earlier indicated that they would file in the petition on Monday next week.

In the petition filed by the UPND legal team this afternoon, the party argues that Lungu was fraudulently elected, therefore his status as president-elect must be nullified.

The petition further states that there is need for a recount of the total votes cast across the Country due to numerous irregularities that were gathered before, during and after the elections.

And the petition stipulates that President-elect Edgar Lungu and his running mate Inonge Wina must not be sworn in as dully elected, citing their allowance of cabinet minister’s stay in office even if the Constitution did not permit.

The petitioners of the presidential elections are Hakainde Hichilema, UPND President and his running mate Geoffrey Bwalya Mwamba.
