Zambia Elections

On October 30th, Zambians will be heading to the polls to elect Late President Mwanawasa’s successor. Having watched the third and final debate of the US Presidential candidates and considering the level at which they have subjected to public scrutiny, I have no doubt to state that whoever emerges victorious in this election will be a true reflection of what the American people want.

 

The developments in the US presidential race are totally the opposite of what is obtaining in Zambia.

It is sad to see isolated interviews of our presidential candidates when there can be debates of the four candidates running for the highest office in the land.

 

In a few days to come, I will be making a proposal to the Zambian people through this site on what should be done with future presidential races.

 

I believe no one should go to State House in Zambia through the back door without a thorough scrutiny of the voters.

  2. Yes it’s a pity that there is not more opportunity for the voting public in Zambia to scrutinise the candidates. But the fact that every US candidate is marketed and needs a huge marketing budget surely means that ‘good but poor’ candidate will be excluded. So I don’t think Zambia would benefit from such a commercialised system.
