WINDHOEK, 04 SEP (NAMPA) - The DTA of Namibia will have its elective central committee meeting towards the end of this month to select by ballot its members for the next National Assembly.
The exact number of party representatives will depend on the number of votes the party garners during the National Assembly election slated for November this year.
Namibians will also vote in the Presidential election.
DTA Secretary-General, Vincent Kanyetu told Nampa on Thursday that each of the party’s structures in the country’s 14 regions are expected to send 10 delegates to the elective central committee meeting, which is set to take place on 27 September in Windhoek.
The nomination of delegates started on Wednesday this week, and will run until 19 September.
Kanyetu thus urged the party’s women, youth and elders’ structures in the regions to submit their nominations on time.
The party will also launch its 2014 election manifesto and website during the central committee meeting.
The DTA administrator indicated that the party’s election campaign will take place under the theme ‘Moving Namibia forward’.
The party will roll out its political campaigns to the regions soon after the launch of its election manifesto.
Meanwhile, the party urged eligible voters to register during the supplementary registration of voters’ process from 08 to 20 September this year.
Other political parties have also started oiling their election machinery.
The ruling Swapo-party will launch its campaign in Windhoek on Saturday, following the successful hosting of its Electoral College last Saturday.
A total of 96 members were chosen for possible positions in the National Assembly.
The Rally for Democracy and Progress (RDP) will have its Electoral College on 20 September.
