People’s Democratic Party (PDP), leader Tendai Biti is set to meet officials from Matabeleland, among them secretary-general, Gorden Moyo and deputy spokesperson, George Mkhwanazi who boycotted the MDC Alliance launch rally.
PDP spokesman, Jacob Mafume confirmed the party would soon table new demands. Said Mafume:
We are not renegotiating. We are still negotiating. We are looking at equity and accommodation, but can’t disclose the numbers as that would be unfair to the process.
PDP was given 14 seats in the alliance in addition to the deputy mayorship of Harare and Bulawayo, but cannot field parliamentary candidates in Matabeleland North, Matabeleland South and Mashonaland East provinces
