ECZ Working On Framework For Voting Of Prisons

Lusaka ~ Fri, 25 Sept 2020

By ZR Reporter

The quest for prisoners to vote in the 2021 General Election depends on facilitating voting modalities in Correctional facilities, Vice President Inonge Wina has said.

Speaking during the Question for Oral Answer Session in Parliament on Thursday, Wina said the Electoral Commission of Zambia (ECZ) is currently working on voting modalities.

The vice president said when she responded to UPND Monze Central Member of Parliament Jack Mwimbu who wanted to know if prisoners will vote in 2021 that government has not given any time frame to the ECZ regarding the actualisation of the modalities.

Presently, prisoners in Zambia have been legally given the right to vote.

    We don’t blame offereders but the motive which makes them to do so is lowlessness in thinking and if a person has that lowlessness minds shouldn’t be allowed in selection of such an important matter unless their is something wrong with legislature, judiciary are people who mainly mantain the rightness or wrongness of the legislature mainly the current regime. Its unfortunate due to the wrong or good type of governance will determine how judiciary may work.

    Small minds? Why do we find small minds in so called nonaligned nations or governments where they sim to support eighter the West nor the East but in reality are middle men who cry louder for helpe from both beging and misusing at the same time. That isn’t the right but the wrong.(mistaken identity) Go on women taping what God made you to be women.
