Transform Zimbabwe leader Jacob Ngarivhume is negotiating with MDC Alliance leader Morgan Tsvangirai to get two more parliamentary seats and 80 council seats as a quota for participating in the coalition.
However, Ngarivhume’s party was allocated 19 parliamentary seats under the alliance which is more than double what Tendai Biti’s People’s Democratic Party got. Said Ngarivhume:
What I can assure you is that we will continue fighting to get a meaningful number of seats and we are negotiating to field candidates for local government (council) seats in about 80 wards even where the seats would be allocated to our alliance partners. Meanwhile, I am negotiating with the MDC-T principal for two more constituencies in Bulawayo or Harare and Manicaland.
Ngarivhume however said the seat allocation was not final as former Vice-President Joice Mujuru’s National People’s Party (NPP) still had a chance to join the alliance.
