By Bruce Chahwanda, Political Editor

THE Zimbabwe Electoral Commission (ZEC) has set up more than 11 000 delimitation voters roll inspection centres for the exercise which gets underway next week.

The Zimbabwe Electoral Commission (ZEC) will next week open the voters’ roll for inspection in line with the boundary delimitation exercise.
The delimitation voters roll has 5.8 million voters.

Briefing journalists at the Zimbabwe Electoral Commission headquarters in Harare this Friday, ZEC Spokesperson, Commissioner Jasper Mangwana said 83 million United States dollars has been set aside for the delimitation exercise.

“The inspection exercise is for those who registered under BVR up to 30 May 2022. The delimitation voters roll has 5 904 497 voters.

“The inspection will run from 17 to 26 July 2022. The commission is inviting applications to observe the inspection exercise,” he said.

Since November last year, ZEC has removed more than 96 000 deceased voters from the voters roll.

“By means of notices, notification is made to any voter whose name appears in the notice who may have an objection to the alteration/correction to object at the Zimbabwe Electoral Commission.

“This should be done within seven days from the date of publication of the notice. From 22 November 2021 up to date, the commission has gazetted 96 284 deceased voters who have since been removed from the voters’ roll.”

ZEC has so far published voters roll alterations with 186 220 errors being gazetted and corrected.
