People’s Unity Party (PUP) leader Herbert Chamuka has been elected the party’s 2023 presidential candidate unopposed.

He has so far been elected by nine of the country’s ten provinces.

 

Manicaland province, which is still to hold its provincial conference, is set to endorse his candidature at the weekend.

 

Speaking from his South Africa base, Chamuka said: “The party has overwhelmingly endorsed me as its presidential candidate for next year’s elections, so I will stand.”

 

“Nobody has been able to challenge me and am happy to announce that the party has endorsed me. Manicaland will have its conference on Saturday and I have already sealed the qualification to stand,” he said.

 

Meanwhile, Chamuka has announced the party’s national executive which was constituted through a rigorous process over the past two months.

 

“We are happy with those that have been elected into positions and upbeat about the prospect of us winning the elections next year. My message to them is that please, work hard for the party and together we can win,” he said.
