ECZ sets September 6 2018 as date for Kasenegwa parliamentary by-election
The Electoral Commission of Zambia -ECZ- has set Thursday, September 6 2018, as date for the Kasenegwa parliamentary by-election.
ECZ Public Relations Manager Margaret Chimanse also says the ECZ will conduct local government by-elections in Kamalamba, Liyovu, Mabili, Nkenyauna and Shikombwe wards.
Ms. Chimanse has advised aspiring candidates to lodge in completed nomination papers on Thursday, August 9th, 2018.
She has also disclosed that only five senior officials of participating political parties will be allowed to accompany aspiring candidates into the nomination centre during the filing of nominations, while the rest of supporters will remain outside the four hundred parameters from the centre.
The by election in Kasenengwa has been necessitated by the death of area MP Victoria Kalima on 15th June 2018, while the vacancies in the wards are as a result of resignation of councilors.
