Opposition parties want UN & AU to establish independent electoral body, say ZEC should be disbanded6 years ago
Newly formed Zimbabwe National Electoral Reform Agenda (ZINERA), a modification of 17 political parties under the National Electoral Reform Agenda (NERA), has approached the Southern African Development Committee (SADC), the African Union (AU) and the United Nations (UN) seeking the establishment of an independent international body to run 2018 harmonised elections.
Speaking at a political interface meeting, Tendai Biti, said:
Our committee on the international relations has started making rounds in the embassies pressing and stressing a point on that reform.Feedback
ZEC is a captured institution and as a grouping we have made representations that the next election should be run through a conduit of a body put together by the SADC, AU and the UN.
The idea that an election can be run through a trusteeship is not new in Zimbabwe. In 1980 this country’s election was run through a trusteeship; so we are not asking for a reinvention of a wheel but we are asking for something that has precedents around the globe.
