NewsDay reports that almost 10 names have been nominated for the MDC vice-presidents’ positions.
MDC National organising secretary Amos Chibaya said the high number of people expressing interest in some positions was a sign of growing internal democracy which calls for celebration. Said Chibaya:
MDC is like a freedom train and everyone is free to join in, that is what we mean when we say our democracy if flourishing. In some instances, we have even up to 20 people expressing interest in one position and we encourage that as long as people qualify. The process is moving on well. We have completed the branches and the ward process. This Friday, we will start on the districts before the provincial at a later stage. So far the process has been violence free.
Insiders who spoke to NewsDay said the names being considered for the vice-presidency include Morgen Komichi, Welshman Ncube, Tendai Biti, Murisi Zwizwai, Lynette Karenyi-Kore, Theresa Makone, Paurina Mupariwa, among others.
