UPND Lose Chilanga By-Election
The ruling PF has narrowly won the Chilanga parliamentary seat wrestling it from the UPND.
PF’s Maria Langa polled 7, 226 against her closest rival UPND’s Charmaine Musonda who amassed 6410.
Chilanga Returning Officer Wibroad Bwalya declared Ms Langa as the duly elected Member of Parliament in the early hours of today.
A total of 14, 121 votes were cast and 189 were rejected as invalid. Questions will undoubtedly be raised over UPND Party management and their choice of candidate.
