Not Logical To Hold Two Congresses In One Year - Mafume

MDC Alliance spokesperson Jacob Mafume rejected claims that the party’s decision to hold an ordinary Congress in 2019 was meant to prejudice other candidates for the party’s top posts.

The MDC-A was expected to hold an extraordinary Congress to hold elections for new leadership. The last Congress was held in 2014.

Speaking to The Herald over the allegations, Mafume said:

This is a Congress year. It would not make sense constitutionally and logically to hold an extraordinary congress and in the same year hold an ordinary congress.

What is required is to do the most democratic thing, which is a congress to elect a whole leadership of the party in a Congress year.

What we need to do thereafter is to have everything moving in tandem with the party’s constitution.

An extraordinary congress would create a situation where you have a president and immediately thereafter you elect a new set of leaders, why not just elect them at the same time.

What we are doing is very constitutional and democratic.
