Zambian Govt Counsels International Election Observers

By Hannock Kasama

The Zambian Government has counselled International Election Observers to be impartial and objective.

Information and Broadcasting Services Permanent Secretary Amos Malupenga also says the stance of impartiality and objectivity by some International Election Observers must be practical.

Malupenga has also implored the international election Observers to develop a tendency of sharing their pre-election findings with government.

He says it is unfair that government always gets the feedback of the alleged international election Observers’ pre-election findings from remarks by opposition figures.

Malupenga said this in Lusaka on Thursday when he conferred with the European Union -EU Media Analysts.

He said government is committed to ensuring that the August 12, 2021 General Election is free and fair, thereby tolerating the international election Observers.

And EU Social Media Analyst Inta Lase reiterated that the EU Election Observers will uphold impartiality and objectivity.

Meanwhile, EU Media Analyst Agness Doka said the EU is expected to render a comprehensive report of its findings after the August 12, 2021 General Election.

Zambia goes to the polls on August 12, 2021 in line with article 56 sub-article one of the country’s constitution.
