Addressing journalists at Morgan Tsvangirai House on Thursday afternoon, MDC-T leader Nelson Chamisa revealed that the party has received 3911 curricula vitae (CVs) from aspiring candidates.
Chamisa said the party will release the final list of candidates in the following weeks. Said Chamisa:
To attest to our readiness, the party’s Elections directorate has received CVs from aspiring candidates who wish to stand in the local government and parliamentary polls. We have received a total of 3 911 CVs from aspiring candidates and this attests to the willingness of Zimbabweans to represent the party at both parliamentary and local government level.
Our preparation is well on course and in the next few weeks, we will have a complete panel of candidates that will represent the party at all levels.
We are determined to meet the 50 percent threshold for women and the 20 percent youth quota in line with the constitution and the resolutions of the supreme organs of the party.
