The Alliance for Progressive (AP) has resolved to work with the Botswana Congress Party (BCP) in the looming Moselewapula council by-election in Francistown west constituency.
Briefing the media after the just-ended elective congress, the AP Vice President Wynter Mmolotsi revealed that the party has taken a decision to work with BCP because they share the same values and principles.
“The congress has resolved that we should work together with BCP in Moselewapula just like we did in Bophirima by-election in Gaborone Bonnington South.
‘We took this resolution because of the same values we share with BCP” Mmolotsi told the media.
Besides that, Mmolotsi said AP is sceptical of working with the united opposition Umbrella for Democratic Change (UDC) with its current constitution.
The looming Moselewapula has divided the UDC amid internal fighting amkng its partners which include Botswana Peoples Party (BPP), Botswana National Front (BNF) and BCP.
However, while the incumbency of the council ward belonged to BCP, BPP also fielded a candidate under the UDC ticket.
The BPP claimed ignorance of the BCP having fielded a candidate insisting that they were never notified.
