A new political Party the Democratic Assembly has called on Republican President Michael Sata to dissolve parliament and resign the Presidency to pave way for general elections.
DA president Maxwell Mwamba says he was mindful of the five year electoral mandate which will run its course up to 2016 but to save Zambia from further economic collateral damage it is imperative for President Sata to resign.
Mr. Mwamba says the unbearable economic climate created by the PF government has made business houses to be unsustainable.
‘The looming fuel hikes can only compound and worsen the situation, it is inconceivable that the Zambian people have to pay K85 for a 25KG bag of mealie-meal, Mr. Mwamba says.
He says the cost of living is beyond 70% of the people who are living below the poverty datum-line a thing he said the PF does not care about.
And Mr. Mwamba says Finance Minister Alexandre Chikwanda wants to see the Zambian economy collapse like he did when he was minister of Finance in the UNIP government.
