The ruling PF has described as unfounded hallucinations assertions it bought off opposition candidates who failed to file nominations for the September by-elections.
Media Director Sunday Chanda says such assertions are coming from desperate political parties that have no sense of direction.
Mr. Chanda notes that it is not true, for example, that the ruling PF is behind the disappearance of the opposition UPND candidate for the Kasenengwa Parliamentary by-elections Faustin Banda.
In an interview with QTV News Mr. Chanda states that the claim by opposition NDC that the ruling PF adopted its preferred candidate for the Kasenengwa by-election, also makes sad reading.
Mr. Chanda says the ruling party does not expect to have crowns in the political space in the manner the opposition NDC is portraying itself by making such claim.
He says the truth of the matter is the ruling PF had 17 candidates that applied for adoption among whom the Central Committee settled for Sensio Banda.
