 MMD fraction goes to Luapula for intraparty polls

Movement for Multiparty Democracy (MMD) National Secretary Raphael Nakacinda has announced that MMD will this weekend be holding Luapula provincial conference. 

In a statement issued to the media Mr Nakacinda said the party’s National Executive Committee resolved during a meeting held on June 9, 2018, to commence the holding of provincial conferences with Luapula being the first province.

He explained that the party president Felix Mutati will officially open the conference at Chinuchi Lodge on August 31, 2018 which will be held in the provincial headquarters Mansa.

“Following the Resolution of the NEC meeting which was held on June 9, 2018, the party has set a date for a one day elective Luapula provincial conference to elect provincial executive committee which will be tasked with the mandate to reorganise the party in the province. The conference will be on 31st August, 2018, in Chinuchi.

“The party president Felix Mutati will officially open the conference which will be attended by delegates from all district executive committees in the province. I must add that current provincial executive members and district officials as well all bona fide card carrying members in good standing with the party and reside within the province are eligible to contest any position.

“This exercise is one of the many strides the party is making in ensuring that the grassroots structures of the party are given a new mandate of mobilising the province and strengthening the party for participation in future elections. As you may be aware the MMD has always been adhering to democratic principles of holding intra party elections. As the mother of our country’s democracy, we will continue to uphold the tenets of democracy and ensure that we continue to contribute to the growth of the country’s democracy,” he said.
