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.
