Having provisionally confirmed president candidate by the National Electoral Commission (NEC), the Democratic Green Party flag bearer Dr Frank Habineza insists victory is knocking ahead of the August Presidential polls.
NEC has on Tuesday confirmed only two candidates, namely Paul Kagame of RPF-Inkotanyi and Dr Frank Habineza Green Party, as eligible to contest for the country’s top spot ahead of the presidential polls slated for August, while others missed out.
Those who missed out, but still have a chance to contest in case they fulfil the required documents include, Diane Shima Rwigara, Gilbert Mwenedata, Fred Barafinda and Philippe Mpayimana, who are all aspiring private candidates.
NEC Chairman Prof Kalisa Mbanda said the four aspiring candidates all failed to collect the signatures needed by NEC before they are allowed to compete.
He, however, says they have the chances to fulfill needed documents until not later than July 6th, a day before NEC announces the final list of candidates who will be contesting for the presidency place on July 7th.
For Dr Frank Habineza, it’s all good news for him and the party he represents, after being confirmed candidate saying it is now just the beginning for the race.
He told Bwiza.com, “We are really happy that NEC approved our candidature, we had all required documents”
He added that being on the provisional list should not give him more chances of winning the elections, but targets shared chances with a win to be on his side at 51 per cent.
He said, “We usually both have chances, but, as I told you last time, we have the chance of winning at least at 51 per cent”
During an interview with one of the local radio stations when asked whether losing the elections is not possible, he said any possibility, whether victory or defeat, might happen adding that he is ready to accept what the results will bring in case no Green party member’s right are violated.
He expressed his wish to see the elections be proceeded through in a transparency and freedom, without violating any one in one way or another, given claims that some of Green Party’s members have their security in jeopardy in different parts of the country.
