Organization Details

The Namibian Democratic Movement for Change (Nam DMC) is a Namibian political party. NMDC contested the 2004 election, but received just 4,138 votes, short of the minimum needed for a seat in the National Assembly.

The party was founded in October 2003 under the umbrella of the Democratic Turnhalle Alliance but left it prior to the 2004 election due to an internal power struggle.[1] In January 2008, the NMDC's leader was Frans Goagoseb. In January 2009, the party's leader was Joseph Kauandenge.

The NMDC received the most votes from the Omaheke Region with 1549. It was more than 37% of the party's total votes and earned them 5th place out of 9 parties in the region.

In September 2009, the Nam DMC launched it's campaign for the 2009 elections. Party Secretary Kauandenge said that the party list for the National Assembly would place women and youth at high positions. The party also planned to launch the campaign publicly in Gobabis, Omaheke Region, possibly by the end of September 2009
