The Commission of inquiry on Voting Patterns and Electoral Violence has received a total of 36 submissions from the general public in Lusaka Province.
Commission Chairperson Justice Munalula Lisimba has attributed the number of submissions to the time they gave the members of public in which they were expected to submit their submissions.
Justice Lisimba says the commission has received overwhelming response from the general public as well as other stakeholders and expressed confidence that it will complete within the stipulated time.
Speaking during a media briefing in Lusaka this morning, Justice Lisimba also announced that it will commence its public sittings in Chongwe District in the chambers on Tuesday from 9 hours to 16 hours.
He has since called on the people of Chongwe to come forward and make their submissions when the commission goes there next week.
Justice Lisimba says the commission has placed high premium on publicity in ensuring full participation of the people in this important national exercise.
And Justice Munalula has reiterated that it will not favor anyone but will submit its submissions and recommendations according to what it is receiving.
He says it is for this reason that the commission is calling on all political parties, Civil Society Organizations to support this important process by encouraging people to appear before the commission and make submissions.
