“Even some of the candidates that come out of the primary elections have not been good office bearers. Some of them have been corrupt and tarnished the party image. This is why I am saying candidates for 2018 should be chosen by consensus and primary elections avoided,” he said.
The MDC-T leader also pledged to be involved in the selection of all party candidates.
“I know all of you and so I will be personally involved in choosing candidates this time around. If you say we have reached consensus to choose so and so to be our candidate when I know that person is not fit for such a position, I will not accept them,” he said.
The MDC-T leader emphasized on the need for unity within the party if the movement is to be able to remove President Robert Mugabe from power.
Analysts have argued that the imposition of candidates and factionalism cost the MDC-T the 2013 election, which was contentiously won by President Robert Mugabe and Zanu PF.
The party’s elections secretary, Murisi Zwizwai said consensus was meant to guard against divisions.
