ECZ, clarify on ‘prisoners to vote’ judgment

Dear editor,
NOW that the Constitutional Court has allowed remandees and convicted prisoners on appeal list to vote in all ECZ organised elections, the Electoral Commission of Zambia (ECZ) must clarify on the implementation of the judgment.

The judgment delivered by Judge Enoch Mulembe on August 14, 2017, is not only very interesting but also hinges on the right to vote.
We need answers to these questions: Will political parties be allowed to address the prisoners as part of their campaigns in prisons? Which polling stations will they use?
These and many more questions should be answered by ECZ as soon as possible.
