CCC Seeks Dialogue With ZEC Over Electoral Reforms

CCC Seeks Dialogue With ZEC Over Electoral Reforms

CCC has written to the Zimbabwe Electoral Commission (ZEC) requesting dialogue on the need to address what the opposition party says are electoral malpractices.

In a letter dated 27 July 2022, addressed to ZEC chief elections officer Uitloile Silaigwana, CCC secretary for elections Ian Makone accused ZEC of ignoring ZANU PF’s alleged rigging tactics such as vote buying, bussing of voters and intimidation of voters in the recent by-elections. The letter reads in part:

Be that as it may, CCC has drafted the attached document citing instances where ZEC through its direct and indirect conduct created election process vulnerabilities that consequently presents/present opportunities for election manipulation.

CCC looks forward to your response on this matter and on the proposed dialogue process to address the stated concerns.

CCC spokesperson Fadzayi Mahere told NewsDay that the party will pursue various remedies to ensure that ZEC addresses its concerns. She said:

The secretariat of ZEC is militarised and partisan. It continues to take orders from the ‘powers that be’ instead of being independent.

Stakeholders are not being consulted sufficiently and the CCC is being excluded from the few consultations that took place. The electoral law needs to be aligned with the Constitution.

State media remains partial to ZANU PF. Political violence takes place with impunity.

There has been no transparency on the census and delimitation processes. Voter education is highly ineffective.

These issues need to be addressed to ensure we do not have another disputed election.

CCC is getting too big for it's head. No political party makes dialogue with an electoral commission. They should just list parikukanganiswa neZEC according to the constitution chete then zvogadziriswa.

The people of zimbabwe shud put zec in the corner. We shud expose how partisan, how unprofessional, how unearthical this comision is. There shud be no manuvures to try to subvert the peoples vote this time. The rigging tactics shud be exposed and denounced in advance. ZEC shud know that we the people are fed up with their circles of electoral thefts and subversions. We will not participate in dubious elections meant to install an unpopular and notorious regime like zanu pf as our gvnment. Not now or anymore. Enough is enough.

There is no law which prohibits ZEC from dialoguing with any political party in Zimbabwe. It can choose to dialogue with a congregation of all political parties or choose to dialogue with an individual political party. Vice versa is lawful too that an individual political party may approach ZEC for dialogue because parties face different problems at different times.

In any case, POLAD and ZEC have already forwarded sets of reform recommendations to the parliament of Zimbabwe for consideration and promulgation into law.

It is these electoral malpractices by ZANU PF which ZEC is allowing ZANU PF to continue breaking with impunity. ZANU PF buys votes. In the recently held byelections in Kariba it bought votes with sweets. What a shame !!!!! In Chipinge it was alleged that it bought votes with 20 USD. ZANU PF's shenanigans do not stop there, but continues by bussing supporters to their rallies, but denies other political parties from doing the same by using captured ZRP.

[ IF ZIMBABWE DOES NOT REFORM ITS ELECTORAL LAWS, IT SHALL REMAIN IN THE OBLIVION OF THE INTERNATIONAL COMMUNITY ]

[VOTE CCC FOR REAL CHANGE]

Yours faithfully
