‘Lungu will win 2021 polls’
- He called for unity among the PF membership in the province, adding that unity and discipline were paramount for the party to deliver for President Lungu in 2021 elections.
PRESIDENT Edgar Lungu will emerge winner in the 2021 general elections, says North Western Patriotic Front acting provincial chairperson, Koshita Sheng’amo.
Mr Sheng’amo said in an interview in Solwezi yesterday that the primary focus for the ruling party in the province is to sell the candidature of President Lungu and ensuring that he wins the 2021 general elections.
He called for unity among the PF membership in the province, adding that unity and discipline were paramount for the party to deliver for President Lungu in 2021 elections.
“We must stand united…observe discipline and we must all know that we have to sell the President first. President Edgar Lungu must win…that should be the primary focus of every party member and official,” Mr Sheng’amo said.
He said members should go on the ground to sell themselves for those who want to stand as Members of Parliament and councillors.
Mr Sheng’amo, however, emphasised that aspiring candidates should conduct themselves in a civil manner and not to malign others.
“But what I can emphasise is that I want this exercise to be conducted in an orderly manner. When people move on the ground, they meet the structures even help the structures organise the party and they conduct themselves in a civil manner,” he said.
Mr Sheng’amo said the mood in the province has changed as people want to work with the ruling party as they are fatigued with the same opposition politics over the last 20 years.
He said the onus is now on them as a party to get down on the ground, motivate the people so that they move together with them.
“Yes we are going to deliver by winning at least good number of parliamentary seats, even council chairpersons…yes we shall be able to do better than 2016,” Mr Sheng’amo said.
Mr Sheng’amo has since called on the general membership to ensure that all the wards are reorganized and put new people in positions where some members resigned or died.
