“Your attention is drawn to chapter 8, section 50(3) of our party’s Constitution as well as Section 1 (b)(I) of the party guidelines which stipulate that three 3-Adhoc delegates will be elected at each ward, at least one of who shall be a woman.”
“It is expected that your exemplary conduct and strict adherence to rules and regulations during assignment will justify the confidence reposed in you by the leadership of the party”, the statement added.
