CCC Accuses ZEC Of Altering Party Symbols On Ballot Papers

CCC Accuses ZEC Of Altering Party Symbols On Ballot Papers

The Citizens Coalition for Change (CCC) has accused the Zimbabwe Electoral Commission (ZEC) of altering its party symbols on ballot papers to be used in the 26 March by-election.

CCC also lodged a complaint to ZEC over the printing of ballot papers in black and white instead of in colour, claiming this was done deliberately to confuse voters.

CCC national secretary for elections Ian Makone wrote to ZEC chief elections officer Utoile Silaigwana on 21 March airing the opposition party’s grievances. Wrote Makone:

The CCC wishes to express its concern regarding the variation in its party symbol. The yellow background is not reflected on the party logo as witnessed by the party candidates during the ballot paper verification exercise.

The sample ballot paper is not an exact depiction of our party intent, hence a violation of our party identity.

It is in this regard that ZEC considers such concerns seriously and rectifies them as per the requirements of the law of the land.

Makone said CCC symbols had an inscribed description of a “yellow square background, circular words surrounding Chamisa’s face with letters CCC inside a black triangle”.

Addressing reporters in Harare on Tuesday, Makone said CCC wrote to ZEC on 24 February seeking clarity on the printing of ballot papers. He said:

What we wanted from them was an assurance that there is a process of consultation even at the local level and district multi-party liaison officer which enables us to proofread the specimen ballot papers.

They never got an opportunity to do that and only found that a number of our candidates could not even recognise the picture that is on the ballot paper. We need to know which voters roll will be in use on Saturday.

However, ZEC spokesperson Jasper Mangwana said they were not obliged to print ballot papers in colour. He said:

The law does not require the commission to print the photograph or symbol of the party in colour.

It is unfortunate that the party went on to educate its supporters without consulting with the commission on the contents and form of (the) ballot paper.

We need everybody, including the international world to seriously get their eyes on zec and how this election will be conducted. ZANU has started its mantra of trying to suppress the people's struggle for change. We have witnessed how CCC campaigns and rallies are being disrupted and stopped by the police which is a very unfortunate scenario. Now the regime is trying to armtwist the vote of the people by capturing zec. Let's now expose them at every corner...

LET US CALL A SPADE A SPADE AND SHAME THE DEVIL. ZEC IS HIDING BEHIND A FINGER. THEY SAY THE LAW DOES NOT REQUIRE THEM TO PRINT POLITICAL PARTIES IN COLOURS IN THE BALLOT PAPERS. SILLY !!!!!

ON ADVISING ZEC OF ITS FORMATION A POLITICAL PARTY ADVISES ZEC OF ITS SYMBOLS AND COLOURS. THIS IS VERY IMPORTANT BECAUSE THESE ARE THE PARTY'S IDENTITIES. WHY THEN LEAVE THEM IN THE BALLOT PAPERS WHERE THEY SHOULD HELP VOTERS TO IDENTIFY THEIR PARTY ? QUESTION MARK NGA.

HIS EXCELLENCY PRESIDENT ED MNANGAGWA ALWAYS PUTS ON HIS SCARF COLOURED IN MULTIPLE ZIMBABWE FLAG COLOURS SO THAT EVEN OVERSEAS THEY IDENTIFY AND ASSOCIATE THAT FLAG COLOURED SCARF WITH OUR ZIMBABWE.

THIS TIME ZEC MAY WIN BECAUSE THERE IS NO LONGER ENOUGH TIME. CCC LEADERSHIP MUST WORK HARD THAT COLOURS BE INCLUDED ON THE BALLOT PAPER IN 2023 HARMONISED ELECTIONS.

[ TWO DAYS TO GO:: DO NOTE VOTE FOR ZANU PF. DO NOT VOTE FOR MWONZORA. VOTE FOR CCC FOR REAL CHANGE ].

YOURS FAITHFULLY
CDE KUFA KWANGU ZVAROVA
[ THE BUSH LAWYER ].
