It’s all systems go: ZEC

Story by Fungai Jachi

THE Zimbabwe Electoral Commission (ZEC) has assured the nation that it is all systems go for the holding of the general elections on Wednesday.

As the election day draws closer, ZEC says all is in place to conduct a credible election with the Deputy Chairperson of the electoral body, Ambassador Rodney Kiwa confident that there will be no hiccups come election day.

“I would like to inform the nation that as ZEC we are ready to conduct a successful election. All is in place be it the ballot papers, polling stations and everything else needed to run a smooth election. What is unique about this election is that it is polling station based. It means you can only vote at one particular polling station, and you cannot vote at any other polling station,” said Ambassador Kiwa.

With the election being polling station-based, Ambassador Kiwa also encouraged candidates to ensure they have polling agents at all polling stations.

He said, “Having polling agents helps in terms of transparency because polling officers will be informing stakeholders present of the state of affairs at the polling station. They have to be present throughout the process until the results are announced.”

Ambassador Kiwa also pleaded with the electorate to remain peaceful.

“I call upon Zimbabweans to remain peaceful and exercise their right to vote in a peaceful manner. We have many observers who came to witness this election and so there is a need to show them we are a peace-loving nation,” he said.

Zimbabweans will cast their votes on Wednesday to elect a president, legislators and councillors.
