A report on the MDC-A pact engagements was circulated and the resolutions adopted by the Committee. As the official leader of this pact, according to the August 7, 2016, agreement, the MDC-T assures its partners that it is fully committed to the MDC Alliance.
The Committee received the Finance and Administration report from the Secretary-General, who is the head of the Finance and Admin Sub Committee, on the state of the party finances.

In that regard, First Vice President Dr. Thokozani Khupe will be supervising the International Relations Cluster, Second Vice President Engineer Mudzuri will supervise the Administration and Finance cluster, and National Chairperson Morgen Komichi will lead the Party Building and Relations with other local organizations.
