President Mnangagwa has said Party structures must remain intact with a sound and clear membership base.

Giving his keynote address to the 351st ordinary session of the Politburo at Party Headquarters, ZANU PF First Secretary and President Cde Emmerson Mnangagwa said the 2023 harmonised General elections are fast approaching and the Party cannot approach the next election with an assumed membership base.

President Mnangagwa also said the revolutionary Party‚Äôs implementation of the 2018 winning People’s manifesto promises with a greater sense of urgency is of paramount importance.

“The 2023 Harmonised General Elections are fast approaching. Let us therefore continue tightening our belts and diligently implementing our Party programmes with greater sense of urgency.

“Our people and Party membership must be kept informed, mobilised and motivated to be productive towards improving their plight and the achievement of the goals we set out in the 2018 People’s Manifesto.

“Structures must remain intact. We cannot approach the next election with an assumed membership base. It is fundamental that we know the figures of those who will potentially vote for us at a disaggregated ward, constituency and provincial level. Nothing must be left to chance” said President Mnangagwa.

The President also said preparations for by/elections must be conducted within the confines of the internal democratic practices and provisions of the Party constitution.
