Nelson Chamisa was still unopposed after Midlands province became the fourth of the Movement for Democratic Change's (MDC) 13 administrative provinces to make its nominations ahead of the party's congress at the end of May.

The party's secretary general Douglas Mwonzora and one of Chamisa's three deputies Elias Mudzuri are reportedly angling to challenge the 41-year-old, but they must get at least one nomination each.

Midlands on Wednesday voted to have Chamisa as president, to be deputised by Harare East MP Tendai Biti and Lilian Timveous, an MDC senator from Midlands province.

The results were announced on Thursday morning.

Thabitha Khumalo was nominated for the position of chairperson, to be deputised by Happymore Chidziva.

Charlton Hwende picked up a nomination for secretary general, with Nyasha Chikwinya proposed as his deputy.

Tapiwa Mashakada picked up a nomination for treasurer, with Gift Banda nominated to deputise him.
