MDC Responds To Churches Proposal To Suspend Elections For 7 Years

The opposition MDC led by advocate Nelson Chamisa has said that it welcomes the efforts by churches to end the socio-economic and political crises in the country.

The party, however, rejected the idea of suspending elections for seven years which the Zimbabwe Heads of Christian Denominations (ZHoCD) had suggested.

Party spokesperson, Daniel Molokele said that it was of much vitality to find an everlasting solution to the political crisis which is the root of all the problems in the country. Molokele said:

Every interested key stakeholder in the country must look for a long-lasting solution, because the people are suffering.

But as the MDC, we have been very clear in our position concerning the future of this country and the way forward, that unless and until we resolve the political issues, the economy is going to be affected.

He added that his party already has a five-point plan enunciated in the RELOAD document which can transform the country if implemented.

The RELOAD document among other things, says that there must be a transitional authority in Zimbabwe until the next elections.

The party claims president Emmerson Mnangagwa is illegitimate hence the need to address his legitimacy for the country to move forward.
