MMD president Nevers Mumba says the former ruling party is not holding any convention this year.
Dr Mumba says whatever calls made by a faction of the party over the planned convention will amount to nothing.
He was speaking during a press briefing at his residence in Lusaka.
MMD members led by National Secretary Mwansa Mbulakulima and fomer Lunte Member of Parliament Felix Mutati are demanding a convention.
Mr Mbulakulima on Wednesday announced that that the MMD will hold a convention on Saturday next week in Kabwe.
