The compromised Transparency International Zambia (TIZ) has bemoaned the continued wastage of public funds on the unnecessary by-elections.
President Michael Sata announced on Saturday that he had induced another by-election by forcing Feira lawmaker Patrick Ngoma to quit the Movement for Multi-Party Democracy (MMD).
Ngoma, a former diplomat and extremely dull minister, is one of the nine MMD traitors that were serving in President Sata's bloated cabinet.
TIZ executive director Goodwell Lungu, deeply compromised by the ruling PF, says it would be better for the country to spend huge sums of money on developmental projects instead of unnecessary bu-elections.
He observes that the by-elections were being caused by selfish individuals.
Lungu has since called on the Technical Committee drafting the Country's Constitution to come up with a provisions that will favor electorates.
He said selfish individual who make it as Members of Parliament and have the tendency of defecting from one party to another to cause unnecessary by-elections in the country should be barred from doing so through new legislation.
There have been over 10 by-elections since the PF took over power nearly 20 months ago. Two more PF induced by-elections will be held on April 23 in Lukulu West and Kapiri Mposhi while another five by-elections are pending in Feira, Chipata Central, Sinazongwe, Itezhi Tezhi and Mafinga.
