Patriotic Front -PF- Secretary General Davis Mwila says the UPND must prepare for another defeat in the 2021 General Elections.
Mr Mwila said this when he received over 320 defectors from the UPND in Chavuma District in North Western Province.
He said the ruling party will take development to all parts of the country including areas where the party received low votes.
Mr Mwila said the PF is still popular because of its development agenda to transform the nation.
He said the PF is the only democratic political organization as evidenced by the space it accords its membership to express views and opinions.
And PF North Western Province Chairman Jackson Kungo said the party in the province is behind the PF Secretary General because he has done so much in terms of uniting and mobilizing the party.
And UPND Chavuma District Chairman Nelson Kainga who led the defectors, said he had been in the UPND for over 15 years and observed that the UPND lacks vision.
And PF Member of the Central Committee Kebby Mbewe said the ruling party has made steady progress in penetrating Southern Province which was perceived a UPND strong hold.
