At the Swapo politburo meeting today at the Swapo headquarters in the capital, only President Hage Geingob’s candidates were nominated and seconded. The other members, Jerry Ekandjo, Helmuth Angula and Pendukeni Iivula-Ithana deferred their nominations to Sunday’s central committee meeting. Ekandjo will contest the position of party president while Angula will stand for vice-president as will Iivula-Ithana.
The special meeting was called for the purpose of the nominations of candidates for the positions of president, vice-president, secretary-general and deputy secretary-general of the party.
All eyes will be on Sunday’s central committee meeting in Windhoek.
