Phiri withdraws appeal on nomination


THE Patriotic Front (PF) has discontinued a petition filed in the Constitutional Court by Minister of General Education John Phiri in which he stated that the refusal by the Electoral Commission of Zambia to accept his nomination papers was unconstitutional.
Dr Phiri was challenging the refusal by the ECZ to receive and process his nomination papers.
He wanted the court to declare that the action was illegal, null and void and a violation of his right to participate in the August 11 general elections.
Dr Phiri said he had gone to the Lundazi Civic Centre in time to file his nomination but was told that he would be communicated to as to the right time that he would present his papers.http://epaper.daily-mail.co.zm/
