UPND President Hakainde Hichilema has called for unity of purpose in the country.
And Hichilema has thanked the Church, professional bodies and civil society organisations for upholding the wishes of the Nation by declining the PF engineered Bill 10 of 2019.
Meanwhile, the UPND President has applauded the PF members of parliament who did not vote for the Bill.
He says the PF MPs who did not vote for the Bill decided to stand on the right side of history alongside the UPND, some Independent and NDC member of parliament.
The UPND President has however called on the aggrieved following the flopping of Bill 10 to remain strong adding that he is ready to listen to them and chart the way forward.
Bill 10 sought among other things to give a sitting Head of State unprecedented powers.
