The Human Rights Commission has called for a continued peaceful environment during the Lukashya and Mwansabombwe Parliamentary by-elections to ensure that the rights of all participating parties and candidates as well as the electorate are upheld and protected.

Commission Spokesperson Mweelwa Muleya has also called on all the registered voters in the two constituencies to turn up in large numbers and exercise their democratic and constitutional right to vote for candidates of their choice tomorrow.

Mr. Muleya has told Christian Voice News in Lusaka today that the protection and enjoyment of the right to vote are fundamental in a constitutional democracy like Zambia adding that must be the case during the Lukashya and Mwansabombwe by-elections.

He further commended the Electoral Commission of Zambia, the Political Parties, and the Zambia Police Service for drawing up and agreeing to observe and manage the election campaign schedules.

Dear friends, if our hearts do not condemn us, we have confidence before God and receive from him anything we ask, because we keep his commands and do what pleases him.
