The opposition FDD house is tumbling down with expelled vice president Chifumu Banda forming a “Save the FDD†group. The former Chairperson of Committees in Parliament said that party leader Edith Nawakwi should step down and pave the way for elections. Banda said the FDD could drift into oblivion if nothing was done to hold the national convention. But FDD spokesperson Antonio Mwanza has moved to dilute the impact of the formation of a splinter group. BELOW IS Mwanza’s statement: FDD Spokesperson Antonio Mwanza Issued the following statement Following a press briefing by Mr Chifumu Banda and his cohorts purporting to be a Save FDD Committee we as FDD would like to inform our members and the general public as follows: 1. That the so called Save FDD Committee is an illegal Committee and has mandated whatsoever. The FDD Constitution clearly outlines the Committees of the Party and the so called Save FDD Committee is not one of them hence all its pronouncements and activities are null and void and must be treated with the contempt they deserve. 2. That Mr Chifumu Banda remains expelled from the Party and has no locus standi to comment on the activities and decisions of the Party hence we will not waste our time responding to him. 3. That the FDD remains united and is firmly behind the leadership of President Edith Nawakwi. 4. That all bonafide members of the Party are encouraged to continue making contributions towards the hosting of the hosting of the Convention.

The story of ballot papers being printed locally was back on the table when President Edgar Lungu visited Government Printers. President Lungu said that ballot papers for the 2021 elections will be printed in the country. The printing of ballot papers outside the country has been a drawn out subject with the argument repeatedly bandied around that Government Printers needed to be re-capitalized. President Lungu made an impromptu visit to the Government Printers and made the pledge that his government would do something his predecessors had only previously promised. He said that the move would save the country costs in incurred from printing ballot papers outside the country. President Lungu urged the Government Printers to ensure that the premises were secured to wade off security concerns. “Whether the opposition parties like it or not, we are going to print ballot papers locally and I am inviting everyone to visit and see the preparations Government is making to ensure that the 2021 ballot papers are printed at the Government Printing Department,†he said. Ballot papers have traditionally been printed in South Africa with the last general elections having been taken even further in Dubai. The post Government Printers To Handle 2021 Ballots, says Pres.
