Mozambique’s main opposition party, Mozambique National Resistance (Renamo), revealed on Monday it is to hold a national council this month to convene a congress to select the successor of the late Afonso Dhlakama.
Alfredo Magumisse, the Renamo spokesperson, was speaking at a media conference in Mozambique’s capital Maputo.
He said there were no formal candidates so far to succeed Dhlakama, and that the national council would be responsible to deciding the guidelines for the elections.
Renamo has been without a chairman since May this year after Dhlakama died due to a serious illness. Since then, the party has been led by Ossufo Momade, its interim leader.
The ruling Front of Liberation of Mozambique (Frelimo) fought a long civil war against Renamo, which ended with a peace deal in 1992 and led Renamo to become the main opposition party.Source: Lusa
