THE Constitutional Court has advised Attorney General Likando Kalaluka to file a fresh affidavit to find out whether the Judiciary has capacity to store all election materials used in the general elections as requested in the 2016 presidential election petition by United Part for National Development (UPND) president Hakainde Hichilema and his vice-president for administration Geoffrey Mwamba.
The UPND have asked the Constitutional Court to order the preservation, detention and custody of election materials and an order of interim injunction against the Electoral Commission of Zambia (ECZ) and its agents from destroying or tampering with the materials.
According to an affidavit sworn by Registrar of the Constitutional Court, Kelvin Limbani, the Judiciary has no space to accommodate all election materials used in the 2016 general elections.READ MORE
