Divine Alliance for Vitalization of Inspired Development (DAVID) party charged that if given the mandate to rule at the 2023 plebiscite their key mission would be to repair the battered economy. This is important because Zimbabwe needs an economy capable of providing essential services needed for the survival of the people.
Speaking at a press conference, DAVID party president Ms. Melbah Dzapasi said:
‘’If given an opportunity to rule, we will certainly address the macro and microeconomic challenges affecting Zimbabwe. Our thrust is to raise the social standards of the citizenry of Zimbabwe, through production and employment opportunities.
We provide leadership that provides transparency and observe good governance and the rule of the law –remaining united in our common pursuit of happiness.”
Dzapasi further noted that her party is credible as it is grounded in social Christian party values aiming at national prosperity.
DAVID party bases its existence on the unchangeable nature of God, who is resilient, transparent, accountable, and corrupt-free, It is very important to build a nation on Godly principles and we will base everything on prayer, she said.
The losing candidate in the 2018 presidential election, Melbah Dzapasi, however, castigated party leaders that are impervious to the people’s will. She asserted that the people’s will is very important and if a leader truly respects God’s principles it will not be easy to ignore the people’s will.
The president of DAVID further said:
‘’the Zeal of liberty shall propel Zimbabwe to liberty and indicated that best transformation emerges from the toughest situations.
She also told journalists at a Media Centre convened press conference that the Political Actors Dialogue (POLAD) is a good platform and said she is a Poladian herself by virtue of contesting the 2018 harmonized plebiscite. She said POLAD is there to promote dialogue in the aftermath of the 2018 elections; hence it’s important for National Building.
DAVID party is pushing for political and electoral reforms in Zimbabwe to ensure that the 2023 elections become free, fair, legitimate, and credible.
Dzapasi also showed mixed feelings on the issue of a Grand Coalition to contest the forthcoming harmonized elections in 2023. She argued that different political party’s ideologies largely hamper coalitions.
In the past weeks, Zimbabwe has witnessed the formation of new political parties that join many other opposition outfits intending to dethrone Zanu PF which has been at the helm of leadership since independence.
