AR gets political party status

Affirmative Repositioning (AR) national spokesperson George Kambala has confirmed that the movement has been registered as a political party.

“We welcome the information wholeheartedly. The process has been long, but finally young Namibians have a party for the youth, by the youth,” he says.

The Electoral Commission of Namibia (ECN) has written a letter to AR representative Maitjituavi Kavetu, granting the party approval.

“The commission has granted approval for your party’s registration,” it reads.

A source says the ECN is still to issue the party a certificate.

Earlier this month, the AR was accused of using voters’ signatures without their consent to improve its chances at being registered as a political party.
