The Movement for Multi Party Democracy (MMD) in the Northern Province have rejected calls for a convention.
Provincial Information Secretary Cephas Bwalya says that the party in the province was not interested in having a convention as the party was intact.
Mr. Bwalya said the statement by the party’s Vice President Brian Chituwo that the MMD is a weak and slowly dying due to leadership failures was not true.
The Information Secretary said this in a statement availed to ZANIS in Kasama District today.
He said the opposition party in the area was still going strong contrary to suggestions by Dr. Chituwo.
He said the party is intact and there are no wrangles in the Northern Province as the Provincial Executive Committee is behind the current leadership.
The Movement for Multiparty Democracy has in the recent past been faced party wrangles as members of the party have expressed a vote of no confidence for the current leadership and have called for a convention to elect new leaders in the party.
