CCC Concludes Candidate Nomination Process

The opposition Citizens Coalition for Change (CCC) will conclude the candidate nomination process this Monday.

CCC spokesperson Fadzayi Mahere on Monday said the nomination process will be done where it was not completed last Wednesday due to logistical challenges. She said:

Today (Monday, 10 April), we will complete the nomination process in areas where, due to logistical issues, the process could not be completed last week.

These aren’t “elections” so there are no “reruns.” All nominated candidates will be announced tomorrow and then proceed to the vetting stage.

Last week Mahere said the process has at least four stages with the nomination being the first stage.

She said the process will also include vetting and the consultation of “key stakeholders” to further scrutinise the list. Said Mahere:

Following nomination, there is going to be a vetting process and the fact that one has been nominated is not the end of the situation, it doesn’t mean that you are yet eligible to be a candidate.

There will also be a process of community consensus building where citizens will come together and be told there is X, there is Y candidate, who do you prefer and why, they have an opportunity to make their case, deliver a very brief manifesto of what they plan to deliver in their wards or constituency and also to take questions from the community concerning their eligibility to run.

Mahere was nominated for the Mt Pleasant constituency seat, while deputy CCC spokesperson Gift “Ostallos” Siziba will likely represent the party in the Pelandaba-Tshabalala seat.
