His swearing in ceremony was held at the Supreme Court grounds where a mammoth crowd turned up to witness the occasion.

 

The outgoing Movement for Multiparty Democracy (MMD) Party had ruled Zambia since 1991. In a national broadcast address, its leader and Head of State since 2008, H.E Mr Rupiah Bwezani Banda conceded the election loss and wished his successor every success in the new job. He, together with first President, Dr. Kenneth Kaunda also accompanied the victorious new President for the swearing-in ceremony, held on the afternoon of 23rd September, 2011. In all, ten (10) persons had contested for the presidency.

 

In his acceptance speech, President Sata promised to fulfil all of his electoral promises, including forcing foreign companies to improve working conditions. He stated that he would reduce the size of government and tackle corruption. He also promised to re-introduce the windfall mining tax and to promote Policies that will bring greater benefit to poor people.

 

President Sata formed the Patriotic Front (PF) political party in 2001, before losing an election that year and subsequently in 2006 and 2008. In this year’s election, he polled 1,170,966 votes representing 41.98% of the votes cast while his nearest rival, former President Banda had 987,866 or 35.42% of the vote.
