President Edgar Lungu nominated MMD National Secretary Raphael Nakachinda as Member of Parliament.
This is according to a statement contained in the streaming here by Special Assistant to the President for Press and Public Relations Amos Chanda.
The move is more like paralyzing the former ruling party.
Mr Nakacinda is the only viable candidate in MMD after its President Felix Mutati was ejected from the ruling PF.
The other MMD fraction president Nevers Mumba has a criminal record while Mr Mutati may see the sun setting when the court makes ruling over his case in in court.
MMD is battling for recognition after the “Loci Standi” of Winnie Zaloumis who sued the party contesting the legality of the convention.
The Speaker of the National Assembly Patrick Matibini has already been notified of this nomination.
