US Ambassador to Zambia Erick Shultz has urged political parties in Zambia to do more to rein in their supporters and prevent electoral violence in the Country.
Mr. Schultz has observed that there is too much violence in the country and that the US is worried about such a political environment
He says the expectation of his Country is that political parties will revert to conducting peaceful campaigns which are also issued based.
Mr. Schultz says issue based campaigns are what is key to this year’s election because electorates will vote based on what they have heard from politicians during their campaigns.
He has since called upon political leaders to speak out publicly and talk to their supports on how to end violence saying violence has no place in a democratic election.
