Chamisa's MDC Alliance Set For Crunch Meeting Over Party Name

Chamisa's MDC Alliance Set For Crunch Meeting Over Party Name

The MDC Alliance led by Nelson Chamisa will on Monday hold a meeting to consider adopting a new name ahead of the by-elections slated for 26 March this year and the general elections scheduled to take in 2023.

This comes after the MDC-T led by Douglas Mwonzora laid claim on the MDC Alliance name and any other name with the acronym MDC.

Chamisa’s spokesperson Nkululeko Sibanda confirmed tomorrow’s meeting to The Standard. He said:

The party will hold a crucial meeting to resolve that issue. You may ask our national party spokesperson Fadzai Mahere for further clarification because I only speak on behalf of the president. She will also make an official announcement after the meeting.

Mahere said the party will reveal its position to its supporters at the “appropriate time”. She said:

The party is ready for the by-elections, but there is a need to implement electoral reforms, which are not negotiable — to solve the governance crisis in Zimbabwe.

We need to align our electoral laws to the Constitution and there is a need for full disbandment of the partisan and militarised Zimbabwe Electoral Commission secretariat.

Mwonzora’s spokesperson Lloyd Damba reiterated that the names MDC-T and MDC Alliance were both theirs. Damba said:

So we are going to use any of the names and no one outside of our party is allowed to use any of the above.

Our claim to the MDC Alliance name is not to spite anyone but is embedded in the history of the MDC name, of which the resolution was made on the 27th of July 2017 and the signing of the pact on the 5th of August 2017 in Zimbabwe Grounds.

I think nero & company were supposed to respect the judgement made by the court.he lost it to mwonzora. If I were him,i would have accepted the defeat & go back to the party (mdc). in my opinion, forming another party it's not a wise move considering the journey they travelled.what is best is for the leadership to find a convergence position and try to revive the old project. As it stands right now, it's now clear that disunity is the major weakness of the mdc as a political party.

@ambassador, it's good u are not Nero our Hero. All people who are following nzondora are after selfish gains from zanu PF.
Have you ever noticed that Masses flock to hear Nero speaking compared to garwe where people are forced to attend his meetings.

MDC ALLIANCE SHOULD NOT FURTHER DILLY DALLY ABOUT THE NAME CHANGE. TIME IS RUNNING OUT.

IT IS NOT THE FIRST TIME THIS HAS HAPPENED IN THE HISTORY OF THIS GREAT NATION. IT HAPPENED WITH ANC/UANC, ZANU/ZANU NDONGA. MY WORRY AND EVERYONE'S WORRY IS THAT MDC ALLIANCE PROCRASTINATED. THEY SHOULD HAVE CHANGED THE NAME LONG BACK TO ACCLIMATISE THEIR MULTITUDES OF SUPPORTERS WITH THE NAME.

DOES MDC ALLIANCE HAVE RESOURCES TO MARKET THE NEW NAME ? QUESTION MARK NGA.
