Hichilema Still Examining Concourt Ruling

PRESS STATEMENT FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE.

NO THIRD TERM.

07/12/2018.

_________

We have noted the Constitutional court’s decision to give Mr Edgar Chagwa Lungu a possible third term office and participate in the future elections.

Using our collective skills, we are examining this decision carefully and will inform the nation of our detailed reaction in due course.

For now, we would like to clearly state that no one is entitled to a third term of office as President of this country.

This is because when courts fail to protect citizens, the citizens, have the power to map their own destiny through people power.

At the same time we would like to remind those who want more than what the constitution states that before even talking about a third term, they must check themselves on their capacity to deliver jobs, better health care, food and a resounding economy supported by constitutionalism.

For us it’s Zambia and Zambians first.

And remember; people power! Our power! Our land.

Hakainde Hichilema

UPND President.

    Law is law.
    If the law is not revised, ECL will not stand 2021.
    If He will, then there is no law in Zambia.
    If PF do not have wise men to be the next President— then its not a political party but a simple Family.
    No third term at the moment.
    > Zambia is turning into a Dictatorship but God is watching.
    And God is ready to punish the hypocrity.

    Don’t worry about the PF concourt. Just get ready for 2021 as the court has given you the weakest opponent.

    This man never ceases to amaze me how he fails to understand the reasons for his losing elections. It is not because of ECL. Remember basic science says the objects are seen because they reflect light not because they make noise. Continue on that path of making noise and let’s see in 2021.

    HH is very predictable . He is now hiung to start complaining day and nights about the ruling, ignoring the definition of a presidential term according to the constitution . Instead of mobilizing his party. By the time he wakes up it will be polls day and PF will win. Regardless of the candidate . Being eligible doesn’t mean that one will stand. But kuli ba Edgar nimona ma win chabe chabe

    Why are you always complaining? As politicians just go and convince the electorates and stop crying .This shows that you are still doubting your chances or maybe you wanted free presidency.tiye nayo, Don’t even underrate the judges, why are your lawyers want to go and study the ruling?probably they are just for money whilst knowing the flaws .just move on whether third term or fourth term it depends on how you will nature the electorate from now till 2021 no short cuts,no public disorder.

    In Zambia there is no justice but only injustices. But wait and see. Read the book of Haggai in the Bible and understand what wat God said to selfish leaders like bena Lungu and BA Of. The Bible says they will have food, money but they will never be satisfied nowander they are crying for a third term. But God is God. Vocation wasn’t just vocation but to Seek powers so that he can win the ruling for councourt . Remember that Great Judge is not asleep and knows how to punish selfish Leaders.

    i really don’t understand why you are busy barking right here. Am sure the court have just given us the reason for the eligibility of president ECL to stand in2021 again, don’t you know the constitution? At least if you were not given the articles to read but you were given. HH know nothing about the laws of Zambia thats why he managed to bribe LAz to be on his side to oppose the president. Lungu knows the law thats why he predicted his eligibility. Go through the constitution and see for yourselves don’t just hear from a cow man HH.

    No need for HH to examine the outcome of the Concourt. Let him just fold his sleeves and get on a vigorous party mobilisation at grassroot level. He does not realise that what he has most are armchair critics who do not go down to the roots. They are comfortable in offices supplying him with state secrets but are not influencing the ming set of a marketeer, street vendor and kaponya who are the voters.
    Tell me how he is going to convince a voter in Itezhitezhi on Lungu’failures who has not seen a tarmac road since independence and now has seen one from PF efforts.

    Concourt is fair only opposition party leaders and NGO’S Wil not accept the out come. A Little legal mind wil understnd that a full term is 3 year and 1year 6months is not a term. Fighting president lungu of bin in office twice is failed exercise by opposition and it pay master. I see president lungu wining again bcoz he is busy workin and opposition are in court fighting cases whch won’t help them. Viva lungu,viva 2021. I hav clear my weapon my voters card and NRC To vote 4 pf again.

    Zambia is a Democratic country so let us use our democracy . why giving the pf third term ?. When pf came to power they are not going to work, let other parties bring their idea upon Zambia.

    If most Political parties merged maybe an eligible President can be chosen from the numerous political parties. But it seems power sharing is not an in thing. Comment
