By Bruce Chahwanda Political Editor

THE Zimbabwe Electoral Commission (ZEC) is engaging political parties ahead of the March By-elections and 2023 general elections on various issues related to the electoral process.

ZEC’s latest engagement with political parties is centered on finding common ground on the election road map.

Briefing journalists after the meeting, ZEC Chairperson, Justice Priscilla Chigumba said all political parties were represented at the meeting.

“The agenda of the meeting was to share information about nomination court procedures, road maps and voter registration blitz,” she said.

Justice Chigumba also noted that after the nomination court successful candidates will meet with the commission for them to have access to the public media.

“After the nomination court, successful candidates will engage the commission in relation to public media. We also encourage Zimbabweans to come in their number and register to vote,” she noted.

Zimbabwe will hold by-elections on the 26th of March and harmonised elections next year.
