Zambia: Ruling PF already celebrating apparent Jan 20 victory

The certainty of who will win the forthcoming Presidential By-election has become very clear with 107 MPS endorsing the candidature of PF President Edgar Chagwa Lungu.

The MPS are now expected to go into the countryside and embark on a vigorous campaign that might secure the win in the 107 constituencies out of 150 Constituencies in Zambia.

The 26 MPS are drawn from the 35 MPS from MMD.

The MPS mostly drawn from constituencies with Zambia's biggest voting population have provided the clear swing that Edgar Lungu needed. The MMD MPS are expected to deliver Eastern Province as a solid block.

With the apparent support from elder statesman and former President Rupiah Bwezani Banda, Edgar Lungu appears to secure the win through this added support from the 26 MPS.

Despite massive resources allegedly given to him by a suspected mining group from South Africa, UPND leader Hakainde Hichilema's countrywide campaign might turn out to be fruitless exercise.

With only 27 MPS the UPND campaign is expected to be foiled and fizzle out to negligible corner influence by the rampaging 107 MPS all being deployed into the constituencies to raise the support of Edgar Lungu.
