HH Calls on PF to Withdraw Constitutional Amendment Bill from Parliament

UPND president Hakainde Hichilema has called on the Patriotic Front to immediately withdraw the Constitutional Amendment Bill from Parliament and return to a National dialogue process that is consensus based, inclusive and transparent.

Speaking during a Press briefing at his residence this morning, Hichilema said the Patriotic Front should withdraw the constitutional amendment Bill from Parliament because the people of Zambia have spoken.

“A serious government should withdraw the bill and not merely u-turning and making false assertions. President Lungu should not assent to the bill but withdraw it to the expectations of Zambians who have the power as they own the three arms of Government,” said President Hichilema.

He made a recommendation that Zambia goes back to Church-led dialogue which is all inclusive and a process of integrity that will protect the content of the constitution.

Hichilema refuted claims by PF secretary general, Davies Mwila that the reasons they are u-turning on the “sham” PF led NDF dialogue process is because they “cared for the Zambian people”, but “the truth is it was as a result of the unwavering pressure from the Zambian people”.

He said the Patriotic Front ran away from a genuine process and coined their own NDF process in such a way that it was meant to benefit those in the PF and not the majority of Zambians.

Hichilema said after feeling the pressure from the people of Zambia, the PF were left with no option but to back down on some NDF resolutions because “they have realized that the Zambian people are not interested in this money and time wasting venture”.

Hichilema said the people of Zambia have won the battle against the PF regarding the constitutional amendment Bill and called on all Zambians to continue pushing them until it is withdrawn from Parliament.

    What has made HH think de Church led Dialogue and Reconciliation will succeed this time?In de first place de same church was given time to do this, but de process died in de infancy stage.What has changed now?Maybe they new Priests and new Bishops. The other observation is that de UPND leader has started talking about taking de Dialogue and Reconciliation back to de Church led one exactly at de same time with de Catholic Bishops. Some Zambian’s have already smiled a rat.

  20. Fonko fonko

    It’s bcoz of desperation. His chances of going to plot one are becoming slimmer and slimmer. He has over stayed in the opposition .

  21. Xero

    How can you seriously say passing a bill in parliament wouldn’t be transparent when you and other parties have representatives present in parliament. Don’t confuse people out of your desperation!!! It can devide the country.
