MMD President Nevers Mumba has maintained that his party’s NEC meeting will take place before this month end despite continued agitations from the Dora Siliya faction.
Opposition Movement for Multiparty Democracy (MMD) President Nevers Mumba has maintained that his party’s National Executive Committee (NEC) meeting will take place before this month end despite continued agitations from the Dora Siliya faction.
Ms. Siliya, who is also MMD spokesperson, has been recently quoted to have warned that if the former ruling party waits until 2016 to have Dr. Mumba removed as party President there will be no MMD to talk about the more reason the opposition party should go for a convention.
But Dr. Mumba, who has also maintained his stance of not responding to any comments made by the Dora Siliya faction, says he can only confirm that his party’s NEC meeting will take place as scheduled and that other issues relating to holding of this meeting will soon be availed by the party’s Secretariat.
Dr. Mumba has told Qfm news that he is confident that the said NEC meeting will take place as scheduled because whole that is need is the formation of a quorum of NEC members in line with the party’s constitution.
Asked whether the NEC meeting will still take place if the quorum is not formed in view of the agitations by the Dora Siliya group which has preferred an extraordinary convention to elect a new leadership, Dr. Mumba has maintained that the said NEC meeting will take place and it will be successful.
And Dr. Mumba has disclosed that his party, which is amongst four opposition political parties that has formed the Opposition Alliance, is doing very well as a member of the alliance.
He says his party has so far attended several meetings of the Alliance and is yet to attend another meeting for the next step of the Alliance.
