By Wellington Makonese

THE MDC has reshuffled its National Standing Committee ahead of the party’s Elective Congress with the opposition outfit reiterating its stance on the need for dialogue to address national issues.

The Douglas Mwonzora-led opposition outfit briefed the media this Tuesday on plans to conduct an elective Congress.

This has seen the party reshuffling its National Standing Committee with Senator Mwonzora highlighting that it is in the interest of the party to have experienced cadres to prepare for the elective congress.

“We are having a Congress soon for all the positions including the top post. But to run proceedings we have reshuffled the national standing committee, we have not left out anyone in the previous team, it’s just a reshuffle process,* said Senator Mwonzora.

Senator Mwonzora also reiterated the need for dialogue to address national issues.

“We are very much keen to have a dialogue to address the economic situation, in fact we are going to do everything in our power to have the government on the table,” he said.

In the reshuffled executive, Dr Elias Mudzuri remains the first vice President, with the only notable change being Honorable Tapiwa Mashakada who is now the Deputy Secretary General tasked with organising the party’s affairs.
