CHRISTIAN INSTITUTIONS LAUNCH ELECTION MONITORING GROUP
Written by Mwenya Mukuka   

Four Christian Institutions have today, 28th November, 2014 launched the Christian Churches monitoring group (CCMG).
CCMG is constituted by four faith based organizations namely; the council of Churches in Zambia (CCZ), the Evangelical Fellowship in Zambia (EFZ), the Zambia Episcopal Conference (ZEC) and the Jesuit Centre for Theological Reflection (JCTR).
CCMG will particularly focus on management of presidential by election set for 20th January, 2014 following the death of President Michael Sata.
Speaking on behalf of the four Church institutions, ZEC secretary General Father Cleophas Lungu said that CCMG will particularly focus on management of the election results knowing that this has to date been one of the most contentious areas.
Father Lungu has also said that CCMG is preparing for a robust Parallel Vote Tabulation (PVT) exercise to be used as a tool for monitoring the integrity of the election results during and after the counting process of votes.
This will be done through the participation of well-trained monitors at the designated polling stations who will be sending official results announced at polling stations to the CCMG results collection Centre.

TO: The News Editors
Date: 25th November, 2014

MEDIA STATEMENT
The latest development of harassing and threatening media personnel by some politicians and government officials is setting a bad precedence and is a hindrance to professional practice of Journalism in Zambia.
History should not be allowed to repeat itself by allowing these acts to continue in Zambia. Journalists are professionals and best positioned to select what news and information the country should listen to and read. No one in the government should become the editor of the public broadcaster or print media.
