Zambia election petition hearing to begin on Monday, August 29

The legal petition challenging the election of Edgar Lungu’s victory in Zambia’s August 11 polls is scheduled to begin formally on Monday.

The decision by the Constitutional Court comes after all preliminary issues were sorted by the applicants and respondents in the case.

The main opposition United Party for National Development (UPND) led by Hakainde Hichilema filed a court action to challenge Edgar Lungu’s re-election, alleging the poll was rigged.
