All People’s Party President (APP), Ignatius Shixwameni has revealed that he will not have any problems relinquishing his position, if he loses the forthcoming elective conference over the weekend.
"I have no problem if I am to leave my position when the people say they are not convinced with my work. What I know is that if I am to leave today I feel proud that I have done my part in the past few years. I have the belief that whoever is to feel my position when I leave, will do an exceptionally good job. The party will also be very open and engaging on the outstanding issues on the party and these will also be made public to everyone," Shixwameni said.
The APP is expected to also come up with a strategy into the fourth coming elections where Shixwameni revealed the party would field candidates countrywide.
He believes opposition politics in the country has taken a paradigm shift from blaming others to coming up with solutions.
Six top positions are up for grabs in the APP’s elective conference including the president, vice president, secretary general, vice secretary general, treasurer and deputy treasurer.
According to Shixwameni, the conference is meant to have a re-look at the party’s four year experience and also map the way forward for aspirant leaders in the party.
"We are going to look at the constitution of the party and see how best we can develop it in the best interest of the party. We will also not be falling into the blame game but we believe that as a party, we have done significantly well. I believe in the past four years we have managed to raise issues that have been taken up by even the president of the country and that is what we thrive to do as a company," said Shixwameni.
