The question of participation in elections will be one of the main agenda at this conference, before the party refused a pre-election race, aiming all resources at the development of party in the country.
Journalists were also informed by Amos Chanda, Special Assistant to the President for Press and Public Relations which not only announced information on new appointment, but also repeated the words of the president that this event has to support the most important alliance of MMD party and the Patriotic Front.
Chanda especially emphasized the fact that the president of Edgar Lungu was deeply shocked by honesty, nobility of Rapheal Nakachinda and his huge sincere desire to serve for the benefit of all Zambia.
