HARARE – Opposition People’s Democratic Party (PDP) president Tendai Biti
will today address a seminar of prospective parliamentary candidates at a
closed door venue in Harare.
The meeting – organised by the elections directorate headed by the
national chairperson Lucia Matibenga – will gather members from the 210
constituencies who have been given a provisional green light by the
districts, subject to confirmation by the General Council.
PDP said Biti will among other issues articulate the party’s policy
direction to the prospective candidates who will form part of the party’s
core in the 2018 election campaign.
The seminar is also expected to discuss election strategies including the
implications of the polling station-based voting.
