MDC gears for 2018 elections
On Tuesday, January 9, 2018 at Harvest House, Acting President Elias Mudzuri chaired the MDC national organising and elections directorate meeting.
The meeting discussed various important matters including, but not limited to, the ZEC BVR extension blitz and the party’s preparations for the harmonised elections that will be held in the next few months.
Acting President Mudzuri advised the meeting that he had met with President Morgan Tsvangirai at his Highlands residence earlier on in the morning and that the two leaders had compared notes on various issues pertaining to the forthcoming general elections and other pertinent party matters.
We are pleased to note that President Morgan Tsvangirai continues to recover very well whilst resting at home and that he was due to leave the country for South Africa later on Tuesday afternoon for his routine medical check-up.
Contrary to recent press reports that suggested that President Tsvangirai will soon be stepping down from the leadership of the party, the fact of the matter is that President Tsvangirai remains the leader of the MDC and he is the MDC Presidential candidate for the 2018 elections.
The meeting also received reports from various departmental heads and President Mudzuri expressed his satisfaction with the party’s level of preparedness for the forthcoming elections. He emphasised the need for unity and focus amongst all the ranks of the party as we approach the general elections that the MDC and its Alliance partners are poised to win resoundingly.
