Harare (New Ziana) – THE ZANU-PF Women’s League Elective Congress is scheduled for June23rd to 26th 2022, an official announced on Wednesday.
The party’s Secretary for the Women’s League, Mabel Chinomona, said the two-day conference would be held in the capital.
The theme for the women’s congress is “Total Political, Social and Economic Empowerment for every woman by 2030”.
Chinomona said regional and international party delegations, women’s organizations, government ministries, and women in business were expected to attend the congress in June.
“We have extended our invitations to our regional and international sister parties, we have also extended invitations to our diaspora districts and other women’s organisations, government ministries, and women in business,” she said.
Also as required by the party constitution, delegates are expected to come from all party districts, provincial and national, as well as women’s league executives and the women’s quota in the Central Committee.
“As per party constitution, our delegates are from all party districts, national and provincial, women’s league executives, and our women’s quota in the Central Committee,” she explained.
Chinomona said all aspiring candidates were required to submit their curriculum vitae to their respective provinces by May 15, 2022. These should cover the aspiring candidate’s political history with special reference to his or her service to the party.
The Commissariat Department would deploy teams led by Committee members to collect the curriculum vitae on May 15 and submit them to the party headquarters on May 16, 2022.
The party’s constitution states that members from the Central Committee have to resign in order to stand for election into the Women’s League National executive.
“If any member from the Central Committee wishes to stand for election into the Women’s League National Executive, they should first resign from their Central Committee post,” she explained.
During the internal election process, the rallying call is for unity among women.
“I call for unity amongst all women as we go through this internal election process,” she said.
