FRANCISTOWN: Botswana People’s Party (BPP) president, Motlatsi Molapise, believes that his party was unfairly allocated constituencies to contest under the Umbrella for Democratic Change (UDC) banner during the 2019 General Election.

The UDC is a coalition of opposition parties and Molapise made these remarks during a BPP congress held here on Saturday. The congress marked a notable change, as it attracted a sizable crowd and had delegates attending from as far as Tutume and Mosetse.

Additionally, during the congress, the party welcomed nominated councillor Gilbert Boikhutso, who had defected from the ruling party. Molapise implied that other UDC partners were less than forthright during negotiations for constituency allocations leading up to the 2019 General Election. In total, the BPP contested in only five constituencies during the last general elections. "In 2019 we got a very raw deal. We did not get most of the constituencies we demanded from the UDC.
