Centre for Policy Dialogue (CPD) executive director Neo Simutanyi has said President Rupiah Banda's tolerant approach has changed Zambia's political dispensation as there is now more debate on issues and Government policy.
Dr Simutanyi a political analyst and a former University of Zambia (UNZA) lecturer in the school of political science said in Lusaka yesterday that because of his political experience and maturity, President Banda was more tolerant.
Dr Simutanyi said Zambians now knew much more about Government operations because there has been increased discussion on Government policy by various players and stakeholders.
"There has been more discussion on Government policy whether negative or positive because of the political environment. Zambians know more of what is happening in Government whether positive or negative, this has changed how politics is done," he said.
He said the president's tolerance could be seen from the manner he handles criticism.
He, however, said that was also helping Zambians to critically evaluate institutions and organisations especially the media.
"Late president Levy Mwanawasa brought in some level of professionalism in dealing with political opponents. President Banda with his political experience and because he knows the likes of Mr Michael Sata and the other players, his approach has been more mature than the last two presidents," he said.
PF/UPND Pact not inclusive, says ..., 14 April 2010 [cached]
PF/UPND Pact not inclusive, says Simutanyi
By Times Reporter
THE Centre for Policy Dialogue (CPD) has said the Patriotic Front (PF) and United Party for National Development (UPND) Pact will fail because the political alliance is not inclusive. Executive director Neo Simutanyi said PF president Michael Sata and his UPND counterpart Hakainde Hichilema were both preoccupied with ambitions for the Republican presidency.
Dr Simutanyi, who is a political scientist and a former lecturer at the University of Zambia (UNZA) in the school of political science, said it was not surprising the UPND and the PF were running parallel campaigns at the moment. He said the two parties were working on the assumption that their constituencies would agree to work together. He said one of the difficulties of the pact was that supporters of both parties wanted their own leader to be presidential candidate in the 2011 elections. Dr Simutanyi said the pact would have difficulties to hold because it was not based on any ideology. "My personal view about the pact is that it is not based on ideology. It is rather based on a narrow agenda," he said. He said the non-inclusiveness nature of the PF/UPND pact would make it difficult to beat the MMD in 2011. He said the success of the Kenyan alliance was because it was broad-based. "I would have loved the two parties to invite others to the pact," he said. Dr Simutanyi said there was also need for the pact to develop a clear power sharing mechanism negotiated by the parties well ahead of the elections. "Even if the pact succeeded, there is no guarantee that a junior partner will receive a fair share of power. "There is also an assumption that the mere coming together of the two parties will guarantee a win for them," he said. He said it was clear that the UPND would be a junior party in the pact given the fact that the PF had more members of Parliament. It would be difficult for the UPND to lobby for the presidency of the pact because the PF was stronger politically, Dr Simutanyi said.
