http://macphersonmukuka.blogspot.com/Green Party Presidential Candidate Peter Sinkamba has become the second Presidential candidate to successfully file in his nomination papers for the January 20th 2015 Presidential poll.
Mr. Sinkamba was successfully accepted as a presidential nominee by the Acting Chief Justice Lombe Chibesakunda after a long wait of about three hours on December 17, 2014
He was successful after Forum for Democratic Alternative Party Presidential candidate Ludwig Sondashi successfully filed in his nomination.
The delay in Mr. Sinkamba's filing in was caused by the lack of the required number of 200 hundred supporters, but later totaled up after the remaining number of supporters showed up.
And Acting Chief justice Lombe Chibesakunda, who was accompanied by Electoral Commission of Zambia Chairperson Justice Ireen Mambilima, congratulated Mr. Sinkamba for his successful filling in of nomination.
Meanwhile, Mr. Sinkamba has express confidence that his party will form government come January 20th 2015 because of the strong political campaign he has carried out.
Mr. Sinkamba further explained that the party’s campaign ideology of legalising marijuana should not be misinterpreted by people.
And People’s Redemption Party has withdrawn from the January 20th, 2015 Presidential election race.
Presenting the decision before acting Chief Justice Lombe Chibesakunda and Electoral Commission of Zambia Chairperson Justice Ireen Mambilima, PRP president Gerry Sikazwe said he has taken the decision because he wants to support the ruling patriotic front.
Mr. Sikazwe who was scheduled to file in his nomination at about 11:30 hours came hours later without any support and made the announcement to the Presidential election presiding officer Justice Lombe Chibesakunda.
On Thursday, 18 December 2014, Forum for Democracy and Development (FDD) Leader Edith Nawakwi, National Restoration Party (NAREP)'s Elias Chipimo Jr. and United Poor People of Zambia Freedom Party Leader Alex Muliokela are expected to file in their nominations.
