Demands for UPND convention growing

Calls for a convention to elect new officer bearers in the UPND are growing.

It however appears that the current leaders are resisting being subjected to internal elections.

Proponents of the convention argue that intra elections will rejuvenate the party ahead of next election as the convention will remove ‘dead wood’ from party structures.

Proponents of the convention, who include at least 15 MPs however are only whispering for fear of being misunderstood.

‘A false impression has been created that anyone who talks about the convention wants to replace HH so you can understand why people are not demanding publicly,’ one MP told the Watchdog.
