We have held 3 Congresses in 2000, 2006 and 2011
We have participated in National Elections since formation despite the hostile and unfair conditions prevailing.
We won the majority Parliamentary seats in the 2008 elections as well as the majority Presidential vote.
The MDC has three main structures i.e. The Main Wing, The Assembly of Women and the Assembly of Youth (Youth Assembly)
