On 23 January 2015, Edgar Lungu became the sixth President of Zambia after a close voting.
Mr Lungu is a former Minister of Defence, and prior to that held the post of Minister of Justice. He heads the Patriotic Front party. His win was the closest call in Zambian presidential voting history hitherto.
Zambia is a stable democracy, and the voting procedures are deemed to be free and fair by international standards. Now it is up to President Lungu to find, and expand ways to further increase economic performance to guarantee the flourishing of Zambia’s future.
Diplomat Magazine wishes a lot of successes to President Lungu!
