SOME political parties and non-governmental organisations (NGOs) have commended the Electoral Commission of Zambia (ECZ) for revising nomination fees for aspiring mayors, council chairpersons and councillors.
ECZ announced on Tuesday that aspiring mayors will now pay K7,500 from the original K10,000, council chairpersons K3,500 from K5,000, councillors (for city and municipalities) K1,500 and K750 for councillors at district levels.
Speaking in separate interview in Lusaka this week, UPND deputy spokesperson Edwin Lifwekelo said his party welcomes the consideration by ECZ to slash nomination fees which had raised a lot of concern among stakeholders.http://epaper.daily-mail.co.zm
