The Zambian police, the Electoral Commission of Zambia (ECZ), civil society and observer missions have all expressed concerns of possible violence that could be triggered by the refusal of losing parties or candidates to concede defeat, in that country’s elections.

ECZ spokesperson, Cris Akufuna, is calling for peace during and after the elections, adding that the commission hopes to announce the results within 48 hours.

Akufuna states that the ECZ has put in place a transparent system to ensure that there is no space or chance for anyone to manipulate the election results.
