By-elections set for June 30

TEDDY KUYELA, Lusaka
THE Electoral Commission of Zambia (ECZ) has set June 30, for parliamentary by-elections in Malambo, Petauke Central and Mulobezi.
ECZ public relations manager Cris Akufuna said in a statement in Lusaka yesterday that on the same day two local government by-elections will be held in Mwense and Mpulungu.
Mr Akufuna said nominations for the by-elections will be held on May 28.
The election results of the three seats were nullified by the courts of law following allegations of corruption in the 2011 general elections.
Last month, the Supreme Court ruled that former MMD Petauke Central member of Parliament (MP) Dora Siliya, former MMD Malambo MP Maxwell Mwale and former Mulobezi MP Hastings Sililo were eligible to re-contest the seats.
