The Secretary General of the opposition Forum for Democracy and Development (FDD) Nathan Mulonga has disclosed that preparations for the forthcoming national convention have reached an advanced stage.

Mr. Mulonga said preparations for the said convention started at the grassroots level, which are the lower organs of the party.

He told ZANIS in an interview in Lusaka today that after winding up with the grassroots levels, the process will go up to provincial level and finally the national convention.

He said the party will ensure that it elects people who will be able to revive the party in readiness for the 2016 elections.

Mr. Mulonga has since urged FDD members to fully participate in the lower organ elections when they start soon.
