PDM requests withdrawal of UPM members from National Assembly


The Popular Democratic Movement (PDM) has requested the withdrawal of two parliamentarians affiliated with the United People's Movement (UPM) from the National Assembly.

Manuel Ngaringombe, PDM's Secretary General, pointed out a breach of the PDM-UPM Alliance Agreement, triggered by UPM's recent alliance with the National Empowerment Fighting Corruption (NEFC).

Addressed to Professor Peter Katjavivi, the communication outlines the violation, emphasising UPM's public support for Ally Angula in the 2024 Presidential Elections, contradicting the terms of the alliance.
