Zanu-PF is expected to make an official announcement of the party’s candidates for this year’s harmonised elections after completing the issue of primary elections.
The candidates were supposed to be officially announced last Friday at the party’s 2018 election manifesto and campaign launch in Harare, but this was deferred to give the Politburo an opportunity to make a determination on grievances raised by losing aspirants.
zanu-pf national secretary for Information and Publicity Cde Simon Khaya Moyo yesterday said the party’s Commissariat Department was expected to make the announcement today.
“The Commissariat is expected to announce the winners tomorrow (today) as well as confirm the areas where there will be re-runs,” he said.
Last Friday Zanu-PF said there would be reruns in about 10 National Assembly constituencies where legitimate concerns were raised about the polling processes.
Zanu-PF’s Politburo endorsed the candidature of just below 2,000 cadres who won intra-party primaries to represent the ruling party in the 2018 harmonised elections.
The nod was given to around 200 National Assembly aspirants, 60 Senate candidates, 60 Women’s quota representatives, 48 provincial council hopefuls, and about 1 900 prospective local authority councillors.
A record number of more than 8 000 candidates took part in the primaries that gripped national attention and showcased the ruling party’s reinvigorated internal democracy.
