MMD to negotiate for an alliance with PF
THE MMD has resolved to consider an alliance with the PF and will commence negotiations with the ruling party for a package that will benefit both parties.
Speaking shortly after the announcement of new NEC members in at the Mulungushi Rock of authority over the weekend, Mr. Mwansa Mbulakulima who is now party trustee said the party will not be fielding a President because they do not want to be embarrassed but will field it own Parliamentary candidates.
The out going National Secretary tasked the provincial chairpersons to engage the grassroots in identifying and submit eligible candidates for the forth coming general elections within 2 days.
Mr Mbulakulima explained that the party is working towards rebuilding so that it can effectively contest the 2021 election saying the party is not in a position to contest presidential elections because of the battles that have been taken place within the party.
And MMD President elect Felix Mutati called on the members to be strong and ensure that the party is rebuilt.
He said there will be no retribution against the other camp and called on them to come and join their colleagues in moving the party forward.
He said he didn’t have a heavy heart against the Mumba faction adding that Dr Mumba’s contribution as the former president of the party was welcome as the party needs all its members.
Former Spokesperson Raphael Nakacinda emerged winer after beating former Deputy National Secretary Cheembe Nyangu while Mutolo Phiri and Annie Chungu went unopposed as vice presidents of politics and administration respectively.
Former Muchinga MP Howard Kunda went unopposed as the Deputy National Secretary.
