RUNDU: The All People’s Party (APP) is considering to abolish its chairmanship position, left vacant after the death of former National Chairman Herbert Shihwameni in April last year.
The late Shihwameni resigned as councillor and member of the ruling Swapo-Party on 15 October 2007 to form the APP, which is led by his younger brother Ignatius Shixwameni as president.
The APP Secretary for Information, Agapitus Hausiku informed Nampa today that he made a proposal to the party’s Central Coordinating Committee (CCC) to consider removing the position of chairman at the party’s forthcoming elective congress, slated for May this year.
According to Hausiku, some of the responsibilities of the chairman currently overlap with those of the secretary-general and the vice-president, for instance, adding that removing the chairmanship position will provide for proper, clearly-outlined and limited structures.
The party’s second elective congress will take place from 01 to 05 May in Windhoek, where over 35 delegates from across the country are expected to attend.
