According to the party’s National Elections Board (NEB) head Catherine Mumma, the direct tickets would be issued based on popularity.

Mumma stated that single candidates in each electoral district who appear popular in a party survey will receive direct nominations.

She went on to say that direct certificates would also be given to applicants who were chosen by consensus.

“We shall only issue direct nomination certificates to single candidates in every electoral area, those who appear popular as per the opinion polls conducted by the party and those who will have been agreed on after the process of consensus,” she said.
