MDC-T says delays in conducting primary elections are due to infiltration by Zanu-PF.

A senior MDC-T official claimed Zanu-PF had infiltrated the party and was causing confusion.

MDC-T deputy national organising secretary Abednico Bhebhe said he had evidence that Zanu-PF had infiltrated his party therefore causing a delay in the primaries.

Meanwhile, the MDC-T's standing committee members are not being contested in primary elections it has emerged.

Other senior members who are not in the standing committee, but who command respect in the party are also shielded from possible embarrassment.The standing committee, which is chaired by the party's leader Mr Morgan Tsvangirai, is made up of 13 people and it is the party's highest decision-making organ.

Only Abednico Bhebhe who sits in the committee and is the MDC-T deputy organising secretary is facing challenge from Nomathemba Ndlovu.

The standing committee agreed to shield its senior members and a national council was convened to rubber stamp the decision.

A final list of prospective candidates approved by the MDC-T national council meeting held on April 4 show that all the standing committee members have been spared from internal polls. MDC-T sitting Members of Parliament are supposed to get two thirds majority backing before subjected to primary elections.
