1. Zambia goes to the polls

Zambia goes to the polls on the 28th of September in an election with five presidential candidates, which is in reality a two horse race between incumbent Levy Mwanawasa (MMD) and his long time nemesis Patriotic Front (PF) leader Michael Sata.


2. Mwanawasa wins 2006 elections

Zambian president Levy Mwanawasa has secured a second term of office with almost 60 percent of the population having rejected him.

Mwanawasa managed to get about 1,177,000 votes. His closest rival Patriotic Frontís Michael Sata managed to get about 805,000 while the United Democratic alliance (UDA) managed to get around 694, 000.
