The Green Party has appealed to the lawyers of UPND
President Hakainde Hichilema to advise him to forget about the
2016 Presidential Petition and focus on the 2021 elections.
Speaking in an interview yesterday, Greens Leader Peter
Sinkamba says there is need for Mr. Hichilema’s lawyers to
properly advise him about the implications of the decision
made by the Constitutional Court and Judicial Complaints
Commission (JCC) relating to the Petition.
And Sinkamba has noted that there is no time to waste adding
that UPND President Hichilema and his supporters should
concentrate on the process of national dialogue and
reconciliation fronted by the Commonwealth through its
Secretary General Patricia Scotland.
Mr. Hichilema should advise him to forget about the 2016
Presidential Petition and focus on the 2021 elections”
At a Press Briefing yesterday held at the UPND Secretariat,
Mr. Hichilema reiterated that his Party will not discard the
Presidential Petition as a way of rectifying recurrences of
electoral unprofessional conducts.
