50 plus one to stay - Wina
GOVERNMENT has no plans to remove from the Constitution the 50 plus one electoral law, says Vice- President Inonge Wina.
Ms Wina told parliament that talks about such manouvres were neither true nor correct.
The Vice President said Government was currently listening to the public regarding how it can improve governance systems and no such issue was being considered.
She added that the talk were part of what constitutes misinformation circulating all over the country.
Ms Wina was responding to UPND Monze Central Member Parliament Jack Mwiimbu during the Vice President’s question time yesterday.
Mrs Wina also said the government was looking for ways to deal with social media abuse on which platforms leaders as well as ordinary citizens have been scandalised.
And Ms Wina said the traffic congestion at Kasumbalesa border post in Chililabombwe had been caused by increased cargo traffic flow due to expanding economic activity in the region.
She said the congestion has been made critical by the construction works taking place on the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) side of the border.
The Vice President said this when Nchanga Member of Parliament Chilombo Chali wanted to know whether Government was aware that over 2, 000 trucks, stretching over 42 kilometers, were marooned at the border post.
