An electoral system is a set of rules on how votes are converted into seats for political or civic authority. 
The purpose of an electoral system is to translate the will of the people to decide on who should be President, Members of Parliament, Mayors/Council Chairpersons and Councillors. 
The Electoral System in Zambia is twofold; majoritarian and simple majority or first past the post.

Election Officials

The role of monitors and observers is to gather, examine and evaluate information relating to the electoral process. During an electoral activity, a monitor plays an active role by intervening and bringing to the attention of the Presiding Officer, Returning Officer or any senior electoral official matters of concern that may arise.  Observers play a passive role and are concerned with making an informed judgment on the credibility, legitimacy and transparency of the electoral process. An observer/monitor may inform the Commission in writing of any observed electoral malpractices.
