In the 2018 election the opposition party split with Thokozani Khupe hanging on to the MDC-T name but only managing a modest 45 626 votes in presidential elections while Nelson Chamisa garnered 2,151,927 votes (according to ZEC figures) as leader of a new party the MDC Alliance.
A controversial High Court judgment ruled that Chamisa had assumed the leadership of the original MDC-T illegally and ordered a fresh congress using the party’s 2014 structures.
