Patriotic Front (PF) launches website

The Patriotic Front political party of Zambia has launched its website at http://www.patriotic-front.com, in time ahead of this year's presidential and parliamentary elections.

The site has links to "Issues", "PF Party", "Secretariat", "Media", a contact web form, a donation link, links to media sources and a "Join PF" link. It features a wealth of information on the history, intermittent struggles and current standing of the party.

The website seems indeed well-designed, efficiently run and there is a striking resemblance to Barack Obama's own website, which was designed with the Open Source software Movable Type under more or less similar circumstancesóbefore Obama contested the U.S. presidency.

The site seems to be a promising source of information and resources on Zambia's political electioneering and will most likely attract many visitors in the short span of time leading up to the general elections later this year, which would in turn boost PF's popularity until then.

Zambia has many political parties, but almost none has had a viable web presence so far, including the ruling MMD. The Patriotic Front is doubtless the "largest political party in Zambia" and a public opinion poll currently running on Muvi TV's website shows that its president Michael Chilufya Sata is the man most favoured to win this year's forthcoming presidential election.

Current results of that online poll, taken by almost 500 online voters, show Mr Sata leading with more than half the votes cast (or 53 per cent), current Republican president Rupiah Banda with 27%, UPND president Hakainde Hichilema with 17%, New Revolution Party president Cosmo Mumba with 2% and New Generation Party (NGP) president Humphrey Siulapwa with 1% of the total number of online votes cast so far.
