Voting Extended In ZANU PF Primaries
ZANU PF has extended voting in some areas to Sunday, 26 March after voters turned out in huge numbers during the party’s primary elections held in eight provinces across the country on Saturday, reported The Sunday Mail.
Masvingo and Midlands provinces, which did not conduct the intra-party polls yesterday, are expected to do so today.
Addressing a press conference at the party’s headquarters in Harare on Saturday, ZANU PF national political commissar Mike Bimha said:
This demonstrates the organisational capacity and capability of our tried and tested revolutionary party.
All things considered, this primary election is geared to be a great success.
Due to the multitudes of our party faithful, who thronged polling stations across the country, the party has been compelled to extend voting in some areas to tomorrow (today), March 26, 2023.
Only the voting centres that did not complete the voting exercise are expected to resume the voting process until lunchtime.
As reported earlier, Masvingo and Midlands will commence the voting process tomorrow (today) from 0700hrs to 1600hrs.
We are expecting 4.3 million registered card-carrying party members to vote in this primary election.
Bimha said all results will be officially announced at the National Command Centre at the party headquarters this week, once voting closes and due processes have been followed.
Meanwhile, Radio Zimbabwe presenter Richmond Siyakurima is among several candidates challenging Simbaneuta Mudarikwa in Uzumba.
