By-elections In First Quarter Of 2022 - President Mnangagwa

By-elections In First Quarter Of 2022 - President Mnangagwa

President Emmerson Mnangagwa Wednesday said by-elections to fill Parliamentary and local government seats left vacant following the expulsion and death of some members will be held in the first quarter of 2022.

There are 28 National Assembly and 105 local authority vacancies across the country.

He made the remarks at Kopa growth point in Manicaland where he was officially launching the Jopa-Kopa highway.

The Zimbabwe Electoral Commission (ZEC) had earlier proposed that the by-elections will be held next year.

According to the draft electoral road map, ZEC has set April 23, 2022, as the proposed date for elections. 

The government last year suspended by-elections indefinitely saying it was a measure to curb the spread of the coronavirus.

The delayed holding of the by-elections has attracted criticism from some quarters including the international community.

The United States embassy in Harare recently asked when Zimbabwe was going to hold the by-elections suggesting that COVID-19 must not be used as an excuse considering that neighbouring countries, including South Africa which has the most COVID-19 cases in Africa, had successfully held elections during the pandemic.

Some view the suspension of by-elections as a strategy by the ruling ZANU PF to make sure that the opposition MDC Alliance is not represented.

Most of the vacant seats were previously held by MDC Alliance members who were recalled by rival MDC-T.

Zanu Pfs moves and tricks are predictable and lethal in many instances.Now that the gave successfully split MDC , and took the name from Nero.
They are now waiting for a new name which will be made difficult to register..I tell anything with Mdc connotation will be difficult to register! What then ?the voting populace will be confused hence a good number of votes will go to mwonzoras mdc.Chamisas party will probably have a clean sweep on the by elections but with demoralizing numbers!
They know that the said constituents are never theirs but it fundamental for them to show people that Chamisa does not have popularity he claims to have.Once that's done it now creates a rich ground for rigging come 2023 , without much questions being raised.

HATS OFF TO THE PRESIDENT OF ZIMBABWE FOR AGREEING WITH ZEC TO HOLD BYELECTIONS IN THE FIRST QUARTER OF 2022. THEREFORE MY YESTERDAY'S COMMENT ON THE SAME SUBJECT WHERE I SAID PRESIDENT MNANGWA WAS MORE CLEVERER THAN MWONZORA AND KOMICHI AND WOULD NOT ACCEPT THEIR ILL ADVICE TO FOREGO BYELECTIONS AND FORM A UNITY GOVERNMENT IS VINDICATED. PRESIDENT ED MNANGAGWA HAS COME OUT IN THE OPEN. HE IS IN FAVOUR OF ELECTIONS. KUDOS TO THE PRESIDENT !!!!!

YOURS SINCERELY
