WINDHOEK, 11 JUL (NAMPA) – The Swapo Party Youth League (SPYL) is in support of the Swapo Party Elders Council’s (SPEC) decision to endorse President Hage Geingob as the sole candidate for the party presidency.
SPYL Information, Publicity and Mobilisation Secretary Neville Andre Itope said this in a media release issued on Tuesday, adding that this decision is in the broad national interest and will consolidate unity within Swapo.
“It is our view that a rational and logical power structure within Swapo, aligned to that of government’s, will aid our developmental objectives,” he added.
Itope assured that all the party wings, regions and structures will support the youth league’s call for a ‘justifiable generational leadership’ mix within the party.
“SPYL further wishes to encourage its own structures and those of the party to pay mind [attention] to policy matters that will inform Namibia’s development going forward.”
He called for strong discussions leading up to congress of key issues such as urban land delivery, land redistribution and income inequality, among others.
Itope applauded the SPEC on successfully concluding its meeting over the past weekend.
He congratulated the newly elected leadership and assured fraternal corporation.
