With time, the districts offices will also be headquartered in the individual districts to allow people first greater access to serve the people and make the party more accessible.

All paid members of NPP are registered to vote in all party elections and activities. However Voting in National elections requires one to be also registered with the Zimbabwe Electoral commission. Your representative will be able to check for you and tell you if you are not a registered voter. National People’s Party will assist all members by walking them through this process. YOUR VOTE IS YOUR VOICE. REGISTER TO VOTE.
Anyone can be a member of the party regardless of where or which country you are currently living. However to vote in National Elections, the current electoral laws in Zimbabwe requires one be physically present in the country during elections, and that one be also registered to vote with the Zimbabwe electoral commission. NPP together with other political parties in Zimbabwe are pushing for electoral reforms that will among other things level out the playing field by allowing Zimbabwean all over the world to make their vote count and let their voice be heard regardless of where they are.
NPP is a new Political Party, comprised of many Zimbabweans from all walks of life. Until March 3rd 2017, National People’s Party was known as Zimbabwe People First Party (ZimPF). Following the dismissal of rogue members from the party, the party unanimously decides to rebrand so as not to be caught up in a costly war of ownership of the former name. The majority of NPP members have no previous political involvement of any kind and are aged 18 to 50. This means that none if any of them have witnessed or enjoyed any prosperity under ZanuPF rule. Many of these members are also very illusioned about the promises of Zimbabwe’s War of Liberation. This Generation now need to liberate itself and usher in the freedom and prosperity that the national constitution promises them. They have been robbed of their future, robbed of their dreams and all hopes stolen with their lives laid to waste. The remaining NPP members come from very diverse backgrounds, former members of other political formations, NGOs and from the Diaspora. NPP is not an off-shoot of any of any of the pre-existing Political Party. We are also very different from ZanuPF in ideology and approach to serving the people. We work with all progressive political forces and organizations that seek to Build and improve Zimbabwe. We believe in the Coalition of efforts necessary to succeed in the task that lay ahead.
Ideologically NPP believes that the People are the true Center of Power and the entire party structure with its leadership at the bottom exists for the sole purpose of serving the people that elected them into leadership positions. Every person in NPP has one vote and every vote counts. We believe in one man, one woman, one youth, ONE VOTE and not one man voting for us all.
All leadership position in the Party are my election ONLY or as provided by the election and nomination rules of the party.. All elections start at the grassroots at cell level. Leadership starts with the people at the bottom electing their representation all the way to the top. The leadership of the party exists only to serve the people at the grassroots that have entrusted them to leadership. The Party constitution is the supreme law of the National Peoples Party and not the whims of powerful individuals.
