Lameck Mangani will have to apply just like others says PF

Patriotic Front (PF) says it’s not automatic that Lameck Magani their 2011 parliamentary candidate who successfully petitioned  the Chipata seat will be adopted to re-contest.

Deputy Secretary Atanga said in Lusaka today, May 8, 2013 that Mangani will have to apply just like any other candidate. She explained that the PF had already started receiving application letters from candidates aspiring to stand on the ruling party seat.

Attanga said the Central Committee will have to analyse all applicants and selected one who will deliver the Chipata central seat. She was responding on queries whether PF will readopt Mangani after he managed to successfully petition the seat.

Yesterday, after the Supreme Court upheld the High Court verdict to nullify Chipata central constituency, Mangani said he will have to wait to hear if PF will adopt him.

Recently the party’s General Secretary Wynter Kabimba said Mangani with Mike Mulongoti were not members of the PF saying they just campaigned to help remove Rupiah Banda and MMD whom they have differed.
