Recognition of the importance of the liberation of Zimbabwe in laying the first step of the country; thus commits to a fresh and transformational leadership that will complete and finish the unfinished business of the liberation struggle.

The promotion of a democratic, transformative market economy where the regulatory role is to create a highly sophisticated and highly technologized society.

Freedom, equality and justice that enable individuals to pursue their own interests and Safeguarding of civil rights and liberties based on the observation and respect of the rule of law.
