ZANU PF Sets Dates For Its Elective Congress

ZANU PF will hold its 7th Congress from 26 to 29 October this year, the party’s Secretary for Administration Obert Mpofu, has revealed.

The party has already held the women and youth league elective conferences with the War Veterans League conference set for this month.

In a circular released by Mpofu recently, ZANU PF has outlined the process that will be followed ahead of the congress.

The Congress will be held at Robert Mugabe Square in Harare.

It will be attended by delegates from Central Committee members, National Consultative Assembly, Women’s League National Executive, Youth League Executive members, National Council of the War Veterans League, provincial executive members, District Coordinating Committee Executives and one district executive chairperson per party district drawn from either the main body, Women’s League, Youth League or War Veterans League.

The ZANU PF constitution in Article 5, Section 25, states that the party shall convene an ordinary congress once every five years.

The 7th National People’s Congress will elect the President and First Secretary of the party who will represent the party as the presidential candidate for the 2023 harmonised elections and elect Central Committee members among other issues.

ZANU PF director for information and Publicity Tafadzwa Mugwadi said that the Congress will be “a big bang platform” for the party’s sole presidential candidate President Emmerson Mnangagwa.
