The Human Rights Commission has said preliminary observation reveals that the campaigns in both Roan and Bahati Constituencies have been generally peaceful.
Commision Spokesperson Mweelwa Muleya has since called for continued restraint from interfering with the right of the electorate to vote for candidates of their own choice in tomorrow’s parliamentary by-elections.
Mr. Muleya has told Christian Voice News in Lusaka today that the Commission has been on the ground monitoring the election campaigns in both Roan and Bahati Constituencies and has observed that all participating political parties were to a large extent allowed to freely campaign.
He further said the Zambia Police Service has respected the Right to Freedom of Assembly and professionally played its role of maintaining law and order in line with their constitutional and legal obligations and mandates.
Mr. Muleya indicated that the Electoral Commission of Zambia was on course in facilitating the right to vote in accordance with the law and called on citizens where by elections are taking place to continue restraining themselves from engaging in unlawful activities and encouraged them to peacefully turn up to vote.
