ED ON PRIMARIES : WE ARE ON THE RIGHT TRACK
President Mnangagwa says his party is on the right track after holding primary elections, generally described as chaotic.
Mnangagwa said that his party was gradually putting all its ducks in a row for the harmonised elections which it is set to win resoundingly.
He said in a statement :”The programme of readying our party for the elections started, quite naturally, with many meetings and many internal processes held across the country, culminating in our party’s primary elections which were held in the past two days.
“Whatever teething problems we have experienced so far, we remain convinced that the democratic course we have started in the management of our party affairs is the correct one, indeed one befitting a party of our history, our strength and our stature.
As the ruling party, the democratic content and standards of our processes define and pre-ordain our national politics. We thus not fear to widen the scope and play of the elective ethic in our party affairs and processes.
Whatever challenges we face in the interim must thus be in the direction of firmly rooting the democratic ethos which, after all, we planted in the land through our historical sacrifices as a party of the national liberation.”
