Dow who once contested for a parliamentary seat in Mochudi West joins the BCP at a time when the party had just finished their primary elections in various constituencies countrywide. The BCP held its primary elections for the new Kgatleng Central constituency last month and one Tumelo Nninka Senwelo emerged as the winner with 648 votes against Michael Moji’s 414.

Dow hasn’t made a decision about contesting for next year’s General Election but she could be slotted somewhere considering that the Delimitation Commission has increased the constituencies in the area to three. This is after dividing Mochudi East and Mochudi West constituencies. The BCP has also indicated that they will hold the second phase of their primaries next month.
