MDC Reveals Why They're Still Participating In ZEC-Run Elections

The opposition MDC led by Nelson Chamisa has said that participating in elections presided over by the Zimbabwe Electoral Commission (ZEC) which they accuse of being biased in favour of the ruling ZANU PF was strategic.

Speaking in an interview with Daily News reporter, Blessing Mashaya, MDC Secretary for Elections, Jacob Mafume said:

We continue to participate to expose the chaos and bias in Zec, its incapacity to run a credible election and its unwillingness to implement recommendations of the 2018 observer missions.

To date, they have not released the 2018 election report as required by law, neither have they done so for subsequent by-elections.

Earlier this year, Chamisa announced that the party would no longer be participating in the ZEC-run elections if the commission was not dissolved.

The party accuses ZEC of having connived with the ruling ZANU PF to manipulate the 2018 presidential elections in favour of the ZANU PF’s candidate President Emmerson Mnangagwa.
