Msoni defends political alliance

Opposition All Peoples Congress party President Nason Msoni says insinuations that political alliances in Africa do not work are misplaced.

Mr. Msoni has told Qfm News that an alliance can work depending on the reason behind its formation.

Mr Msoni says the existing opposition alliance in the country was formed to address and redress the social and political imbalances in the country under the Patriotic Front.

He explains that the preoccupation of the opposition political parties in the alliance is not to remove the Patriotic Front from power, stating that if the PF has to be removed from power, it will be because they have failed to live up to the expectations of the people.

Mr Msoni says the opposition parties want to work together realizing that they can be progressive force when they stand and work together.

Mr. Msoni has further urged other opposition leaders who are not part of the alliance to join in order to strengthen the opposition voice for the benefit of the Zambian people.
