Forum for Democratic Change (FDC) has rejected the proposed regulations to govern political parties' internal elections during Covid-19 period, which were presented to Parliament on Thursday last week by the minister for justice and constitutional affairs.

In these regulations, government wants parties to conduct virtual meetings, generate resolutions through signing of papers and to use party organs to hand pick flag bearers for the forthcoming national elections.
