The MDC-M leadership race is on, with reports a notice to the party membership to start the selection process ahead of the party’s elective congress next month will be issued this week.
Party national spokesperson Edwin Mushoriwa last week said the MDC-M national council met on Wednesday and set January 8-9 as dates for the much awaited congress to be held in Harare.
He said a notice for the congress would be sent out to all party provinces this week.
Mushoriwa said all party posts were up for grabs.
“It’s an elective congress and all posts are up for grabs. A notice to all provinces to start selecting their preferred candidates in a democratic way will be issued soon,” he said.
The major highlight of the congress is expected to be the election of a new president and the current secretary-general Welshman Ncube is tipped to land the top seat.
