‘MDC Does Not Want Power Sharing, But A National Transitional Authority’

The Movement for Democratic Change (MDC) led by Nelson Chamisa will push for electoral and political reforms if the envisaged dialogue with the ruling ZANU PF party comes to fruition.

A party insider who spoke to Busines Times said the party does not want a power-sharing arrangement, but a Transitional Authority that will lead the country towards a credible election in 2023. The unnamed official is quoted as saying:

We need genuine political and electoral reforms that are wholesome as we don’t want piecemeal reforms. We also need independent commis­sions and adequate constitu­tional amendments.

We can’t continue to have a cycle of disputed elections as what has been happening in the past. The MDC can only participate in the elections with genuine reforms.

The opposition is not seeking power-sharing arrange­ment with any party but wants reforms and also a National Transitional Authority which the modalities can be worked out.

In 2009, a government of unity was formed, with Robert Mugabe as President, while Morgan Tsvangirai of the MDC was Prime Minister.

The coalition government, however, failed to implement several reforms that were agreed on during its four years of existence.
