WINDHOEK, 29 NOV (NAMPA) – The United People's Movement (UPM) will host its central committee meeting (CCM) in Rehoboth between 30 and 31 March next year in preparation for the 2019 national elections.
In a press release issued on Tuesday, UPM Secretary General (SG), Thelma Kunze, said the CCM will discuss UPM’s 2019/2020 election strategies amongst others.
This comes after the UPM held its executive meeting on Friday in which it expressed its disappointment over the continued delay in the provision of affordable urban land to the poor inhabitants of the country, according to Kunze.
“The party also agreed that the land issue should get urgent attention as the Swapo government has failed to address it,” Kunze said.
She further urged the UPM branches across the country to submit their nominations to the SG before the 09 March 2018 in terms of the UPM constitution.
Kunze added that the nominations will determine who will represent the party at the 2019 national elections.
“The UPM will close on 30 November 2017 with a church service and re-open on 11 January 2018,” She stressed.
The UPM, which is headquartered in Rehoboth in the Hardap Region, was established in 2009 and participated in the November 2010 national elections.
