Zapu adopts youth quota system for parliamentary candidates for 2018 elections

Zapu spokesperson Iphithule Maphosa on Sunday said the party is adopting a youth quota system in its ongoing selection of parliamentary candidates for the 2018 elections.

Said Maphosa:

We are preparing for the 2018 polls, and just last week, we had Matobo South structures choosing Sibanda to represent them in the parliamentary elections. We are open to a coalition, but at the same time we need to have our candidates in place before a coalition pact is in place. Everything is in line with coalition arrangements where there will be a need to share parliamentary seats and so forth, hence, we are now selecting our candidates. We are also looking at rejuvenating the party by having the youth as candidates in line with statements by Dabengwa that the youth should be forwarded to the National Assembly. We have a template that will ensure that we also have the youth representing the party.
