In her speech, her Royal Highness encouraged a unified support system of Zambians and a people that are proud of their culture, their country and their national institutions, including the Electoral Commission of Zambia.

The ECZ Strategic Plan is anchored on the following objectives; a) Enhancing eficiency in the management of elections, therefore ensuring that the Commission delivers high quality and inclusive electoral services to our Zambian people (whether women, youth, persons with disabilities); b) Enhancing stakeholder engagement and participation in the electoral process, therefore undertaking continuous engagement and sensitisation programmes; c)Building the confidence and trust of various stakeholders in the electoral process by augmenting the Commission's corporate image; and d) Continuously improving the skills of staff, the governance and management structures in view of ensuring a Commission that has the requisite competencies to implement the electoral process and responds to the needs of the electorate.
