Harare, Zimbabwe. (News of The South) – MDC-T National Youth Assembly has come out in support of the recently agreed MDC Alliance coalition of opposition political parties meant to end President Robert Mugabe’s more than three decades long grip on power come 2018.

 

 

The MDC-T National Youth Assembly leader, Happymore Chidziva, addressing the media said the decision was reached during the meeting of the Youth National Council that took place on Tuesday.

 

 

“Following a meeting of our Youth Assembly National Council today, we wish to affirm our support to the efforts of President Morgan Tsvangirai and the MDC Alliance in forging a coalition ahead of the watershed election next year,” Chidziva said.

 

 

Chidziva added that the coalition is the strategic platform to bring about change in the troubled Southern African nation.

 

 

“Lastly, we reaffirm our support to the coalition-building process and the consolidation of a formidable MDC Alliance. We believe the coalition will be the best platform through which to bring the much-needed political change in the country. As the MDC National Youth Assembly, we are fully behind this process in line with the demands of the people of Zimbabwe,” Chidziva said.

 

 

The coalition of the opposition parties, which is seen as a formidable force to unseat President Robert Mugabe, who has maintained his grip on power since 1980, has been hit by squabbles within the MDC-T with the party leader Morgan Tsvangirai and his deputy, Thokozani Khupe, giving divergent views on the proposed grand coalition.

 

 

The Youth Assembly boss said the youths are happy with the 20 percent allocation to the Youths to contest in the National Assembly.

 

 

“The MDC Youth Assembly is happy and content with the party’s decision to allocate a 20 percent quota to the assembly. As such we are now preparing our candidates list for next year’s elections. The party has already advised us that all constituencies that we have been holding and those we contested are all youth constituencies,” Chidziva said.

 

 

Chidziva urged Zimbabweans to fight for a democratic society were the rights of citizens are respected.
