OUR door-to-door campaign in the Southern Province is working very well and we are bound to amass more votes in this year’s election than we did last year because the strategy is helping us have a personal interaction with the electorate, the Patriotic Front (PF) has said.
Provincial information and publicity deputy chairperson Paul Silungwe said with plenty of time to campaign and a good strategy in place to woo voters by the ruling party, the opposition should brace itself for a stiff competition in this year’s election.
Mr. Silungwe said the PF campaigns had gained momentum in the province, adding that he was happy that the ruling party’s campaigns were going on smoothly. The campaign teams in various places in the province wanted to ensure that they mopped up as many votes as they could for the party.
He said the PF was assured of victory because of a serious campaign it had embarked on in the area as opposed to last year’s presidential by-election in which it only had three weeks to organise itself but its candidate still emerged victorious.
He said he was happy that the leadership in the province was more united now than it was in last year’s election, adding that the party will reach all the homes in each of the constituencies because it wanted to have a one-on-one interaction with the electorate so that it changed their perception on the need to vote for quality leadership as opposed to voting along party lines.
