MMD President Dr. Nevers Mumba claims that the Grade 12 certificate requirement for people seeking elective office will help weed out old and recycled politicians from the political sphere.
Dr. Mumba says this is the more reason why when he launched the New MMD he emphasized on the need to bring in new a crop of leaders more especially youths and women.
He says his party will give equal chances to both women and youths to contest on the MMD ticket in the forthcoming elections.
Dr. Mumba adds that the people are tired of having the same people eating in government.
He says it is therefore necessary that young people arise and take over the leadership mantle and relegate old politicians to role of giving counsel to the new entrants in politics.
