Electoral Commission of Zambia has set July 26th 2018 as the date for the Lusaka Mayoral elections.
These elections will be held to replace Mr Wilson Kalumba who died last month.
ECZ also announced six other wards elections to be held on the same date.
The Commission will also conduct elections for new Council Chairpersons in five other district councils.
“Notice is hereby given to the general public that the Electoral Commission of Zambia
has prescribed Thursday 26th July, 2018 as the date on which to hold the Mayoral
elections in Lusaka and Council Chairpersons’ elections in Chasefu, Chipangali, Kasenengwa, Lumezi, Lusangazi and Chifunabuli districts,” the notice read.
The Commission will on the same date hold by-elections in Chachacha, Lwambazi, Kangwena, Kanongesha, Kanyama and Looma wards.
The Council Chairpersons’ elections have been necessitated following the declaration of Chasefu, Chipangali, Kasenengwa, Lumezi, Lusangazi and Chifunabuli as districts by President Lungu.
The By-elections in the six (6) wards have been necessitated by resignations and deaths of Councillors in the named wards.
