GABRIEL Namulambe says the opposition political parties in Mpongwe will have difficulties finding suitable candidates because most of the prominent individuals from 'Lambaland' have joined PF.

In an interview, Namulambe, who recently resigned as MMD Mpongwe member of parliament to join PF, said the opposition in the constituency was non-existent.

"They will have difficulties even selecting candidates to stand on their tickets because most of the prominent people from Mpongwe have crossed over to PF," Namulambe said.

He said the people of Mpongwe wanted development and that this could only be realised by working with the government of the day.

He said the opposition stood no chance in the by-election as the people of Mpongwe always wanted to work with the government of the day.

And former Mpongwe district commissioner Rasford Bulaya said the people that had been reported to have joined UPND had very little influence on the electorate in the constituency.

The Electoral Commission of Zambia (ECZ) has set February 28, 2013 as the date for Mpongwe parliamentary bye-election.
