The Patriotic Front will tomorrow hold an extra-ordinary Central Committee meeting at State House to choose a new party President ahead of the forthcoming Presidential election.
Patriotic Front Secretary General Edgar Lungu in a notice to all Members of the Central Committee obtained by QFM News says the meeting will be held at 09:00 hours.
Mr Lungu’s has listed the filling of vacancy for party President as the main item on the agenda.
Patriotic Front members are divided on the mode to use to select the party’s Presidential candidate for the presidential election with some favouring the general conference in line with the party constitution, while others want the Central Committee to vary the constitution and select the candidate.
The forthcoming Presidential election has been necessitated by the death of President Michael Sata who died in London on 28th October and was put to rest yesterday at Embassy Park.
