Another by-election in Chipata Central.

The supreme court has nullified the election of MMD Chipata Central MP Reuben Mtolo Phiri that losing PF candidate Lameck Mangani had petitioned.
But ailing dictator president Michael Sata today said PF welcomes the by-elections as they are not breaking any laws.
This is the fourth PF engineered by-election that is also likely to be held together with Feira, Kafulafuta, Solwezi East, and now Chipata Central.
Acting Chief Justice Lombe Chibesakunda is under instructions to nullify all the by-elections under her courts as a condition to be confirmed without going through a parliamentary select committee.
The timing of the ruling and resignations of others from MMD to Pf was also meant to stretch the opposition as the Electoral Commission of Zambia (ECZ) is expected to join them so that they are held at the same time.
