Nyangu : MMD Will Not Replace RB As Its Presidential Candidate

The ruling Movement for Multi- Party Democracy (MMD) says it is illogical for anyone to suggest that the party should find a replacement for President Rupiah Banda as presidential candidate in the forthcoming general elections.
MMD Deputy National Secretary Chembe Nyangu says there is no point for the party to take such a step as President Banda was legally adopted and endorsed by the convention which is the highest decision making body of the party.
Mr. Nyangu says it is worrisome that the opposition Patriotic Front has started coming up with gimmicks when it has realized that it has already lost the elections to the MMD.
In an interview with QFM, Mr. Nyangu has accused the PF of trying to find a weaker candidate to face in the forthcoming general election as it has realized that president Banda is a saleable and winning candidate.
The MMD deputy national secretary says the MMD will remain steadfast and will not to give the PF any chance by bowing to its demands.
Recently, the opposition Patriotic front advised the MMD to find a replacement for president Banda as presidential candidate for the forthcoming elections noting that president Banda is not eligible to stand for presidency as his parentage is questionable.
