Sichinga : Elections Will Not Be Free And Fair

Bob Sichinga says Zambians should not allow the date of elections be the preserve of one particular individual.
Commenting on the announcement by President Rupiah Banda today that elections will be held on 20th September, Mr. Sichinga who is an economic and political consultant says there are a lot of disadvantages in allowing the president to announce the date of elections.
Mr. Sichinga says the forthcoming elections will not be free and fair because the MMD has been campaigning using government resources before the official campaign period.
He says President and his ministers have been campaigning using public resources.
Mr. Sichinga adds that the next government should ensure that they look at the constitution with emphasis on setting of the election date.
