UDC files urgent application


Umbrella for Democratic Change (UDC) has filed an urgent application before the High Court against the Independent Electoral Commission (IEC) seeking an order declaring their candidate as one of the candidates for Satellite Ward in the Francistown East Constituency.

The party wants a review of the IEC’s decision made on the September 26 declaring that the party’s candidate Chakalisa Selugwe did not satisfy requirements to be nominated as the local government for the ward therefore refusing his nomination.  

According to the umbrella’s court documents, the coalition says its candidate had satisfied the requirements for being nominated as the local government candidate for Satellite Ward in the Francistown East Constituency and hereby nominated as such representing them as a party.
