ECZ’s professionalism vindicated by Bahati, Roan elections – Chanda
Governance Activist Bupe Chanda says the just ended Roan and Bahati parliamentary by elections have vindicated the Electoral Commission of Zambia ECZ that it is doing its work professionally.
Mr. Chanda says instead of politicians always accusing the ECZ of being unprofessional and making claims of rigging in every election, they should invest more on being vigilant until results are announced.
Mr. Chanda says politicians should also be willing to accept results of every election whether negative or positive, as this is what democracy entails and therefore, the Roan and Bahati polls are taking democracy to higher heights.
He says accusations of rigging and other unwarranted claims only builds tension which Zambia is finding itself in because of some politicians’ failure to allow tenets of democracy by accepting results.
