Acid Test For MDC Over Welshman Ncube And Tendai Biti Candidacy In The MDC Congress
Constitutional experts have said MDC Alliance partners Welshman Ncube and Tendai Biti cannot be appointed or elected to any post ahead of the party’s National Elective Congress since they have not been MDC members for at least five successive years.
A report by a local publication quotes a legal expert Advocate Samuel Chadenga confirming the development.
Chadenga said according to Section 5 of the MDC constitution, Biti and Ncube are not eligible to run for office.
“If the MDC want to go the constitutional way then Biti and Welshman are not eligible to run for any office ,they should wait for five years or two years if they want to be in the district council.”
Political analyst John Muchenje said the MDC has no respect for their constitution an assertion which was denied by MDC spokesperson Jacob Mafume.
Mafume said his party’s National Elective Congress is guided by a template from the National Executive Council.
He refuted claims that the party has a different copy of the constitution.
