Zimbabwe People’s Party has written to ZEC in a bid to get Walter Mzembi‘s newly formed political party People’s Party to change their party’s name, The Herald reports.
A letter addressed to ZEC’s Priscilla Chigumba seen by the publication read in part:
We note with concern the use of part of our name by your political formation which you and your team decided to call People’s Party (PP).
We take this to be poor political practice which will definitely affect the voters in any future election that our party ZPP and your new party PP will participate in future. Use of similar names, logo colours and letterhead concerns as you and your team adopted is not the best way to go in politics especially when you want voters to have clear choices of candidates in a ballot paper.
ZPP was formed last year in June while Muzembi’s PP was formed this week.
