HARARE – The MDC-Alliance has reiterated that it will not be changing it’s name amid recent strange developments in which Thokozani Kuphe’s MDC T claims it will go for the by-elections as MDC Alliance.
The Nelson Chamisa led Alliance confirmed that it will not be changing it’s name after the meeting of the party’s National Executive Committee (NEC).
“The party restates that it is the MDC-Alliance party. It contested the 2018 elections as the MDC-Alliance. As the alternative, it has MPs in Parliament and Councillors in local authorities. It has been victimised as the MDC-Alliance and will win as the MDC-Alliance. It will remain the MDC-Alliance,” said the party Spokesperson, Fadzayi Mahere.
The statement comes after the Kuphe led MDC-T claimed the Alliance as their name also.
At the same meeting, the NEC made calls demanding for comprehensive electoral and political reforms, highlighting that free and fair elections were a necessity.
The statement also stated that the NEC had made resolutions to consult various stakeholders at grassroots level on ways going forward.
