Parliament Restores Bill Number 10…UPND MPs Walk Out in Protest

The Constitutional Amendment Bill number 10 has been restored to the order paper after parliament presided over it.

Opposition UPND members of parliament walked of parliament but their protest could not halt the process that required a simple majority to be restored.

Home Affairs Minister Stephen Kampyongo moved the motion to have the bill restored.

The bill will now be table before parliament at second reading stage.

The motion only needed a simple majority to be passed.

Leader of the opposition in parliament Jack Mwiimbu led the UPND legislators as they stormed out of parliament.

      When it comes to final voting to pass the bill into law, PF needs two thirds majority. To have this they need all the independent members of parliament( Not a problem). They also need just two UPND members of parliament. This will be a secret vote. So we already have Five prominent UPND Mps from southern province who have shown interest voting with PF on this one. Ofcourse with wads of dollars in their pockets and plots at Forest 27. Bill 10 will be law soon ande we shall have it signed by his excellence Dr. Edgar Chagwa Lungu. This time it will be at Levy Mwanawasa stadium.

    They should continue walking away even when allowances are being given out… wasting electorate’s time for development.

    I THOUGHT IF THERE IS ANYTHING WRONG WITH THE BILL THIS WAS THE TIME FOR THE UPND PARLIAMENTARIANS TO DEBATE TO PERSUADE THEIR PF COUNTERPARTS AND GIVING REASONS WHY THE BILL IS BAD. ALAS THE UPND MPS COULD NOT DO THAT. THEY HAVE NO POINTS. NO POINTS DURING THE DIALOGUE, NO POINTS BEFORE THE CONSTITUTIONAL COURT, NO POINTS TO RENDER IN PARLIAMENT. HENCE THE WALK OUT. WHAT A SHAME.

    Bill 10 has been rejected by many Zambians. I see no reason why pf should be so excited about a bill with a lot of negatives. Zambians are economically traumatised and pf is trying to injure the Zambian people further. Last time pf mps voted to make el richer than hh- very illogical.

    Upnd mps should have shown why the bill number ten is bad then moving out without solving anything. Poor upnd leaders who can’t stand for the people of Zambia but enjoying our money.

    Let me talk about the reason why PF want to pass this bill its because of the system of voting being used, they Know that if they use 50%+1, they can’t win the rerun because of the opposition alliance. They want to change it so that they can use winner takes all because they can win if they do so.They started with NDF.

      Commen You people who’re against bill 10, tell the nation what is bad about it. Your MPs can’t find any reason to reject and they walk out of parliament instead bmdebating and pointin out the wrong.The NDF and parliamentary committee where the issue concerning bill10 was supposed to be discussed was shunned. Prof Lungwangwa has clearly explained that all the contentious issues in the oginal draft have been left out and it’s clean piece of registration. What is the matter or the mps are simply following the orders of their real dictator (party leader) If this is the kind leadership we’re headed for where you reject every move by government, then forget about my vote and those of my family members.

    Those that aren’t able to read between lines, simply put, what the pf are just doing is shaping the constitution to suit their agenda…and never in the interest of the nation. But people can’t see or rather choose not to notice. Continue regionalising everything. Even when what I’m saying makes sense, people won’t get it because I’m from a certain region. Nciindi cenu.
