Sources who spoke to The Chronicle said MDC Alliance secretary general, Douglas Mwonzora is likely to challenge the party leader Nelson Chamisa for the presidency.
When contacted for a comment, Mwonzora said he has full rights to seek election to any party position. He however said he is not aware of the position he will contest for. Mwonzora added that he will contest for any position he is nominated for. Said Mwonzora:
Let me answer this way, I am a full member of the MDC with full rights given by the MDC constitution. One of these rights is the right to contest any position. However, I’m not yet aware of the position that I’m going to contest because the nomination process has not yet started. So I do not know what the members are going to nominate me for. The system is not whether you want or not. It’s whether you are nominated. But the nomination has not yet started so I’m not aware, I don’t know what position I will contest. But I’m eligible to contest any position. The nomination process is going to be taking place in due course. I will also be announcing shortly after the nomination, if I get nominated for any position I will contest that position. But I have not been nominated yet.
