PF Rejects The Reintroduction Of Deputy Ministers and Coalition Government

THE Patriotic Front (PF) says it is against the NDF resolution for a formulation of a Coalition Government.
In a statement, PF Secretary General Davies Mwila announced that the party’s Central Committee also made a collective decision not to support the reintroduction of deputy ministers.
And Mwila said the Central Committee has proposed that the period in which a civil servant is required to cease being a civil servant before seeking election to political office be reduced from 2 years to 6 months.
Meanwhile, Mwila said the Central Committee has supported the inclusion of a mixed member proportional representational system in parliament to include marginalized groups such as the disabled and women.
He said the party has also supported the proposal to increase the time for hearing of a Presidential Election Petition from 14 to 30 days.
The PF has further supported the clause which seeks to entitle Ministers to continue holding office until a new Government is elected is supported.
He said the party further collectively agreed to support the election of mayors and Council Chairpersons from among councilors as they will not only be answerable to people in a ward but also to body of councillors and MPs in the entire district who run the Council.
And Mwila said the party has also supported the inclusion of the Chief Justice as a member of the Constitutional Court but refused to support the merging of the Constitutional Court and the Supreme court.
Mwila further shamed all politically inclined and hired civil society voices and armchair critics that have been parading themselves as activists and opinion leaders without any mandate from anyone.
