A Congress of the Nelson Chamisa led CCC will cost the party a minimum of US$2 million, the Party's Secretary General Charlton Hwende has said.

Responding to pressures from its various stakeholders who are calling for a Congress Hwende said, "The two biggest cost centers in a political party are 1. Congress  2. General Elections. There is no sane party that holds both events in the same year because to have a congress for CCC you need US$2Mil (min) and an election a min of USD$150Mil. Politics is a very expensive game."

Hwende added that the party is now focused on the roadmap towards the 2023 elections.

"We are less than 12months before an election and the 3 critical priority areas are 1. Voter registration 2. Candidates selection and Polling Agents training 3. Fundraising. Let's not be distracted from these 3 key areas that will guarantee us a landslide victory in 2023."

CCC has been under pressure from stakeholders to hold a Congress.
