Political party representatives and the civil society organisations are keenly monitoring the voting process.

The campaign period was general calm with isolated incidents of violence especially on Wednesday where  Patriotic Front (PF) attacked a United Party for National Development (UPND) MP Kennedy Hamudulu.

The Feira by election was necessitated by the resignation of then MP who was from the MMD  to join PF.

Five candidates, from the MMD, NAREP, UNIP, PF and UPND are contesting the seat.
