Resumo: Edgar Lungu of the ruling Patriotic Front (PF) won the presidential by-elections by one of the narrowest margins ever against the runner-up, Hakainde Hichilema of the United Party for National Development (UPND). The elections were deemed free and fair, but levels of turnout reached a record low. Inonge Wina became the first female vice president and the PF was the major winner in the parliamentary by-elections. Parliament passed the Constitution of Zambia (Amendment) Bill, which changed the formula for winning presidential elections from a simple majority to 50% plus one. Eduard Lungu set himself an intensive travel programme to further and deepen bilateral relations with neighbouring countries in Southern Africa and with China. China remained a key investor, with important agreements reached in the technology, communications and transport sectors. Against falling copper prices, Zambia’s currency continued to be devalued, the economy slowed down and unemployment increased in the mining sector. A new mining tax regime was approved. The electricity deficit rose dramatically, generating a severe power crisis, and electricity tariffs increased. The cost of living rose and only two out of the eight MDGs were attained.
