No electoral demands are unreasonable’
The Commonwealth Observer Group has said that the Zimbabwe Electoral Commission (ZEC) must listen to all complaints ahead of the polls to ensure fair treatment of all parties.
Chairperson of the Commonwealth Observer Group and former president of Ghana, John Dramani Mahama stated that ahead of the upcoming polls no demand is deemed unreasonable as there must be a perception that everyone is being treated fairly.
In the runup to an election, no demand is unreasonable…Everyone wants to create sufficient democratic space and have a high level of confidence that they are being treated fairly. And so I think that is for Zec to listen to those complaints and where it is possible within the law to address those complaints to do so. But if it takes Zec outside the ambit of the law, I don’t think that is something they can contain. So no demand is unreasonable, and I guess every political party will push the democratic space to ensure that their confidence level going into the election is good enough.
…Even though elections are a human process as much as possible we need to contain the concerns of everyone because we want everyone to into the election with a high level of assurance that they are going to be treated fairly in the electoral process” he said
Mahama added that his group would ensure transparency and impartially as part of their observation mandate.
