Zanu-PF and MDCs push for voter registration extension

Zanu-PF and the two MDCs have agreed to lobby the Zimbabwe Electoral Commission (ZEC) to extend the biometric voter registration (BVR) process by two months from the 19 December deadline. They also want Zec to continue registering potential voters even during the festive season.

MDC-T secretary General, Douglas Mwonzora said that they will meet Zec today to discuss the issue. Said Mwonzora:

We are moving together as an inter-party team comprising Zanu PF, MDC-T and MDC. These are the parties in Parliament. We have been assessing the biometric registration programme and getting feedback from the political parties’ representatives. We are in agreement that voter registration be extended by two months in all the areas and specifically that it must continue even during the festive season so as to deal with those who are coming from the Diaspora.

Zanu PF deputy legal secretary Munyaradzi Paul Mangwana also confirmed that the three parties have agreed to meet Zec today.
