He said the manifesto further gives a clear roadmap of the policies, programs and projects that the PF government intends to initiate and implement from 2021 to 2026 after winning the forth-coming August general elections.
Meanwhile, Hon Mwila has announced the adoption of Iris Kaingu the socialite and daughter of former Minister of Education Michael Kaingu to contest the Mwandi Constituency Parliamentary seat on the PF ticket.
He said this when he revealed the list of all the successful applicants for the Parliamentary, Mayoral and Council Chairpersons in Western Province.
And Hon Mwila has urged the unsuccessful candidates to remain loyal to the party and support the adopted candidate as there could only be one candidate adopted per seat.
“I, therefore, call upon all those who have not been adopted to remain to remain loyal and dedicated to the party and the president and rally behind the candidate that have been adopted.
There are so many portfolios that one may be appointed to once we win elections. Moreover, leadership is not about positions but the willingness to sacrifice and fight for others,” Hon Mwila said.
