The MMD in Mufulira has advised that it is too early for the party to start searching for a presidential candidate for the 2011 general elections. MMD Mufulira chairman Harrington Mambwe says premature campaigns for President Mwanawasa’s successor would divide the ruling party ahead of 2011.
Mr Mambwe said this in an interview with ZANIS in Mufulira today during the MMD party’s card renewal exercise.
Mr. Mambwe said the MMD in Mufulira will only start discussing the issue of president Mwanawas’s successor after the ruling party’s NEC gave a go ahead .
Meanwhile, the MMD in Mufulira has hailed the business community for the support they have continued to render to the ruling party.
Acting MMD District Secretary Dickson Chibekete said the support from the business sector to the ruling party was commendable.
