The Zanu-PF national political commissariat has released names of all aspiring candidates in the forthcoming primary elections to be held on the 29th of this month.

The Zanu-PF National Political Commissar Retired Lieutenant General Engelbert Rugeje said the party has allowed members to exercise their democratic rights by voting candidates of their choice.

The primary elections have seen the party relaxing rules on the applicants willing to participate.

Of interest are 20 candidates who are battling it out in Mt Darwin South constituency.

Rugeje revealed that the decision by the leadership to allow the populace to select their preferred candidates is the basis for democratic elections in Zimbabwe.

He has indicated that the party has put up an arrangement where all the aspiring candidates in the primary elections will campaign at one venue with each one of them given an opportunity to sale him or herself to the electorate.

Rugeje said this was done to ensure no candidate denigrate other candidates in a move that will foster unity among the Zanu-PF members.

Apart from Mt Darwin South constituency which had 20 candidates, Zvimba North submitted a total of 14 candidates making it the second constituency with the largest number of aspiring legislators.

While some constituencies had so many candidates, other candidates in other constituencies were not contested and these include Buhera North, Bindura North and Matabeleland North constituency among others a development which shows popularity of the sitting legislators in these areas.
