Divisions in Tendai Biti’s PDP over MDC Alliance

Some members of Tendai Biti’s People’s Democratic Alliance (PDP) are unhappy over the party’s decision to join the MDC Alliance led by Mr Morgan Tsvangirai. PDP’s Bulawayo province spokesperson Mr Edwin Ndlovu said

At the end of day we want the seats that we proposed as the Parliament has 210 seats now. The worst scenario is getting 21 seats we had until MDC-T recalled our MPs. If that doesn’t happen we will certainly be out of that coalition.

Party spokesperson, Jacob Mafume added:

It’s part of the negotiations I’m sure the MDC-T is not happy to offer, people are not happy with what they are being offered. So we have communicated our position.

Political parties are not choirs whereby when you sing you must have perfect harmony. Political parties are organic groupings which are a collection of interests of individuals, with sometimes conflicting views, opinions.
