HARARE – Zimbabwe Electoral Commission (Zec) has said it does not intend
to conduct a new delimitation of constituencies and wards for the 2018
It will instead conduct the elections on the basis of the constituencies
and wards gazetted ahead of the 2008 elections.
Legal watchdog Veritas said Zec has run out of time having decided to wait
until they had completed a new voter registration exercise using Biometric
Voter Registration (BVR) before doing delimitation.
Zec has said it aims to complete BVR by December 31, 2017.
“Failure to conduct a proper delimitation before the 2018 general election
is likely to affect the credibility and legitimacy of the electoral
outcome,” Veritas warned.
