|The Citizens Democratic Party
The vision of the Citizens Democratic Party is to "Put People First" in a decentralized national governance system that will be compatible with an economy that will guarantee Zambians of a life of
hope, freedom, and opportunity where people in their own communities can decide what’s best for them rather than being told what to do by the central government in Lusaka.
In contrast, what is being practiced in Zambia is de-concentration, which is sometimes called administrative or bureaucratic decentralization. This system of governance simply transfer functions
from the central government to the district or provincial offices. Real decision-making is retained by the central government.
The Citizens Democratic Party will lead a smaller but efficient government with clear separation of power among the three arms of government; the executive, the legislature and the judiciary, by
strictly appointing cabinet ministers from outside parliament.
The mission of the Citizens Democratic Party is to:
1. Realign the political landscape of Zambia by decentralizing our governance system, while upholding our founding father’s philosophy of one Zambia one nation.
2. Reform the tax code in conformity with a decentralized governance system.
