The ZANU PF Primary Elections
The ruling party will hold its primary elections on Saturday, 23 March 2023, as people vie to represent ZANU PF in the upcoming 2023 Harmonised Elections on a date yet to be announced by President Emmerson Mnangagwa.
The primary elections were initially slated for 18 March but had to be postponed due to the overwhelming number of CVs submitted by aspiring candidates. On Saturday, the candidates will contest for Council, Parliament and Senate seats.
