Mwonzora Says Confident MDC-T Will Win 2023 Elections

MDC-T president Douglas Mwonzora has expressed confidence that the party will emerge victorious in the general elections scheduled for 2023.

Addressing journalists on Thursday, Mwonzora said MDC-T has learned from its poor showing in recent by-elections and is now well-placed to challenge the dominant parties, ZANU PF and CCC in next year’s elections. He said:

The party is preparing for the 2023 elections. We have resolved that we are going to contest 210 constituencies.

We did learn our lessons as the MDC in the bye-elections that happened on the 26th of March and we have put in place a strategy that will deal with those.

After we did not do well in the by-elections we went back to the drawing board and we are making those interventions that will make us succeed.

We are going to fare much better than most political parties in 2023.

Mwonzora denied allegations that he intimidated other party officials from challenging his position ahead of the MDC-T elective congress set for 18 December.

One of the alleged presidential hopefuls, Norest Marara, filed of an urgent chamber application at the High Court alleging unconstitutional practices in the party. Said Mwonzora:

There was a court application by Mr Marara but that court application has been dismissed by the courts as being not urgent.

We are very happy that Mr Marara took his case to court where people who are not us presided over it.

No one was stopped from contesting the elections. We do not intimidate people here in the MDC.

I made it clear as the MDC president that my position was up for grabs. I am the only opposition leader who dares to do that.

Since the formation of CCC early this year, MDC-T has failed to win a single parliamentary or local authority seat in by-elections that were delayed by the COVID-19 pandemic. | NewZimbabwe.com

  1. @President Mwonzora – do you really take time to orient yourself with the realty around the political landscape in Zim on the ground .From where I sit the game is between ccc and zanu.No other party is in the party .If there is its waste of resources and creating of confusion to the electorates.
    You exudated great intelligence when you snatched power from Chamisa and ultimately khuphe and Soley running away with MDC and thereby becoming an official opposition in a country through your brain power –not by masses .No ordinary man could do that. In the next election you will be lucky get a council seat as masses will be voting for candidates of their choice

  2. Batanai mese muite chirochimwe se Zanu Pf, G40 yakadzoka nezhara vava kungoti Pfee, muchaziva kuti ndovaisharadwa na Gire manje manje apa kkkk mai vaya vakasunungura Zimbabwe tichiti mutoriro. Politics pane nyaya Chatunga kudzokera ku Zanu.

  3. The MDC fate was sealed long ago It will never rule this beloved country.Full Stop. Dreaming is allowed Mr MDC President, keep on dreaming.
