Bulawayo, January 19, 2013 – The smaller faction of the Movement for Democratic Change (MDC) led by Professor Welshman Ncube has officially invited applications for prospective candidates for the anticipated 2013 harmonised general elections.

MDC Secretary General Priscilla Misihairabwi –Mushonga, in a circular released recently, said that the applications of prospective candidates must be submitted to the provincial chairpersons no later than February 14.

This follows finalisation of the draft constitution on Thursday by the principals of the Global Political Agreement (GPA).

President Robert Mugabe (88), who has led Zimbabwe since independence in 1980, is set to contest the elections as the Zanu (PF) candidate.
