Democratic Congress (DC) Special Conference has postponed party’s national executive committee election in order to promote party unity ahead of the much-anticipated General Elections pencilled for September.
The conference decided that the party should focus much of its attention on drumming up support for the party as it will be contesting elections for the first time under leadership of Deputy Prime Minister Mathibeli Mokhothu
Mokhothu ascended to the DC leadership following the formation of a splinter party Alliance of Democrats by former Deputy Prime Minister Monyane Moleleki who had been hopeful to be Mosisili’s successor but his leadership bid in DC failed.
The party also resolved to suspend certain clauses of the party constitution in order to provide new party members who joined the party as members of parliament and or community counsellors an opportunity to contest the elections if they receive popular support at the party primaries.
