The Social Democratic Party (PSD), a prominent political entity, declared on the last Sunday that it intends to finalize the selection of its candidate for the July 2024 presidential election in March of the same year. This significant revelation took place during a meeting of the party’s Political Bureau, a pivotal event aimed at reviewing the party’s achievements and outlining future strategies.

Valens Muhakwa, the PSD’s First Vice President, underscored the party’s active engagement in the preparations for the imminent presidential and parliamentary elections. "The party is not standing idle," he declared, emphasizing the PSD’s commitment to playing a substantial role in Rwanda’s political landscape.

Muhakwa outlined the internal process for selecting the PSD’s presidential candidate, stating, "According to the party’s regulations, the decision will be made by the national congress scheduled for next Wednesday." This clarification sheds light on the formal procedure governing candidate nominations.

Expressing pride in the party’s accomplishments over its 33 years of existence, Muhakwa highlighted the PSD’s noteworthy contribution to Rwanda’s national development. He intends to leverage this track record as a compelling argument in the upcoming electoral campaign, stating, "We are preparing plans and strategies that we will present to the Rwandans," and indicating that the party will emphasize its achievements when seeking votes.

Despite not fielding a presidential candidate since 2010, when Jean Damascène finished second with 5.15% of the votes, the PSD appears determined to make a robust comeback on the presidential stage.
