The candidates will battle it out for the position of Vice President, Secretary General and Deputy Secretary General at the party national congress to be held in November this year, which will also elect members who will serve in the Central Committee for the next five years.

Prime Minister Saara Kuugongelwa- Amadhila and the Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of International Relations Netumbo Nandi-Ndaitwah were initially the sole candidates for the Vice President position while incumbent Secretary General Sophia Shaningwa was expected to re-run that position uncontested.
