MDC president Professor Welshman Ncube will not contest for any position in the forthcoming elections and will only help co-ordinate and campaign for his party candidates and MDC-Alliance presidential candidate, Mr Nelson Chamisa.

Ncube told reporters on Friday that said he was not contesting for any position in the forthcoming elections.

“I am certainly not contesting. I think you have seen that the MDC has published its list of the candidates for the National Assembly and my name is not there so that tells you I am not running for the National Assembly seat nor am I running for Senate nor the Proportional Representation. So you will not find my name in any of them,” he said.

Prof Ncube also said he was not angling to become a deputy to Mr Chamisa as he was already a leader of a party — MDC.
