The Movement for Democratic Change Alliance is set to sign a coalition agreement on Saturday in a bid to unseat President Robert Mugabe’s Zanu PF party in the 2018 general elections.
The MDC formations led by Morgan Tsvangirai and Welshman Ncube, Tendai Biti’s People’s Democratic Party, Jacob Ngarivhume’s Transform Zimbabwe, Zanu Ndonga, Multiracial Christian Democrats, Zanu Ndonga and Zimbabwe People First are confident that they will beat Zanu PF in the next polls.
Thousands of people are expected to witness the signing ceremony at Zimbabwe Grounds in Harare.
In a statement, the MDC-T said, “The democratic forces in the country are converging to forge a formidable united front in the next election in line with the demand of the people of Zimbabwe.”
Critics say the MDC Alliance will struggle to unseat the ruling party, which has been in power since Zimbabwe attained independence from British rule in 1980.
