Zanu PF acting spokesperson Mike Bimha also confirmed the development saying the development was also meant to reduce the number of delegates attending the national conference at all the provincial virtual centres.
“It also endorsed the need to follow the Covid-19 regulations and protocols. This implies that all delegates at each provincial centre must have been vaccinated and tested. They must be able to observe social distancing,” said Bimha.
“The Politburo following deliberations resolved to suspend provincial elections until further notice. This was done to allow party structures to focus on the preparations of the Annual People’s Conference.”
The Politburo also reiterated the position of the party constitution on the youth league which states 35 years as the limit for league membership.
“It was agreed that this provision must be respected unconditionally and that the composition of the youth league at any time must be 35 years and below.
“However, to ensure growth of the national members of the youth league who are now above 35 years, it was resolved that these members will be retrained and redeployed as ex-officio members of the Central Committee.”
