Newly appointed Patriotic Front Copperbelt Acting Provincial Chairperson Bernard Zulu has urged party structures to recommend popular people as the party adopts candidates for the forthcoming general election.

Zulu says recommending popular candidates will make the elections easy and ensure victory for President Edgar Lungu.

In a press statement, Zulu directed all Branches, Wards, Constituencies and Districts on the Copperbelt to rally behind all candidates who will be adopted by the Central Committee.

Zulu said there is need for unity of purpose and loyalty as the ruling party heads towards the general election.

He has also thanked President Lungu for having appointed him to oversee the Province.

Zulu has promised to unite the party and work hard to ensure he delivers victory during the general election.
