ZEC Says It Isn't Partisan And Doesn't Rig Elections

ZEC Says It Isn't Partisan And Doesn't Rig Elections

The Zimbabwe Electoral Commission (ZEC) has dismissed allegations that it rigs elections in favour of the ruling party ZANU-PF and instead, said its electoral processes are some of the best in southern Africa.

ZEC spokesperson, Jasper Mangwana, said people who criticise ZEC do not understand the law governing ZEC operations.

Speaking at a Twitter space on the March 26 by-elections: Lessons for the 2023 Elections organised by CITE in partnership with the Zimbabwe Electoral Support Network (ZESN) on Tuesday evening, Mangwana said:

We are independent and impartial. It’s unfortunate. I think because of the narratives and some speculation happening but at times if you look at the commission it would be good for us to be taken into account according to the law.

I will be waiting to see evidence on this. I was moving around in Harare to see and visited agents of all political parties, asking them and all said they were happy, (voting) was quite clear and transparent including how people are coming in to vote.

This issue of vote stuffing and ballot papers disappearing is not a reality because of how the electoral process is structured.

The electoral process is very transparent not only in Zimbabwe but I think in the region. We have one of the most transparent electoral processes when it comes to casting votes so I think this is quite key for people to look at that.

Mangwana claimed some complaints that were raised against ZEC had nothing to do with the Commission and challenged opposition legislators to reform the Electoral Act in Parliament.

He said ZEC has an open-door policy and is willing to engage all stakeholders to ensure that it delivers free, fair and credible elections.

that setup of having security sectir to vote first before rest of th population was set aside after downfall of Mugabe

t was discovered that ballots from police voting were stashed with voting slips which wont be tallying with the registered number on that ward

t was one of th political reforms which was in Motshlande commision
that criteria used to give an upperhand to Mugabe zvakarambwa

Gvnment is doing a massive transfer of police who served 5years in a station e transferred its one of the strategy used by Zanu pf to reduce votting from Police camps ,ccc had won resulndingly on most urban camps for axample muchikurubi,manyame air base,hre central police camp ,

Harare have 50 000 police officers statistucally 42 000 ppl voted for an opposition inshort police yose ndeye opposition,Right transfering means a police will not be able to vote from the area they have registered,we are saying aBindura policemen is now working in mazoe ,when they are in Mazoe they will be assighned to be a plolling agent or an ellection observer automatically they wont have time to vote to their area they have registered A lot of families are going to be inconvinienced.I smell a rat,The Junta might have been shocked with the by-election outcome.I was fortunate not to have served for the Government under this New Dispensation.

One thing for sure,UNIFORMED FORCES are the first to vote....on the voting day,in the history of our elections,police don't vote,as they would be busy...YOU MUST KNOW THAT THE POLICE WILL VOTE A WEEK OR 2 WEEKS BEFORE POVO VOTE..

POINT OF CORRECTION TO THOSE POLITICISE NON-POLITICAL ISSUES.

EVEN BUSH LAWYER LAST YEAR ONCE SUGGESTED THAT.

Jah🇿🇼Tsvarie-07 2 months ago

The missing word (reforms) keep coming and now its from the ruling advising those who cry of rigging after an election to table their cries in parliament...

Hope🇿🇼 the 🇿🇼word 🇿🇼rigging🇿🇼 will 🇿🇼be over🇿🇼 in 🇿🇼2022

Why are the zec and zanu pf headquarters across from the street from one another. That's very suspicious to me.

And Zanu PF vehicles always frequent the ZEC offices almost everyday, some parking there for several days and it has become a common thing.

ED is the one who selects people at ZEC as well as the judges who will rule in the case of a disputed election. Dictators are very paranoid so they cannot fully entrust other people to cooperate in keeping them in power
