MDC Alliance leader Mr Nelson Chamisa, who revealed that he played a crucial role in the appointment of commissioners to the Zimbabwe Electoral Commission (ZEC), which today he condemns as lacking capacity to run a credible election has requested for an urgent meeting with the full ZEC Commission.
Said MDC Zimbabwe, “President @nelsonchamisa requests urgent meeting with the full @ZECzim Commission.”

Chamisa yesterday threatened to boycott this month’s general election after claiming that ballot papers have been rigged to favour President Emmerson Mnangagwa.
Chamisa, one of Mr Mnangagwa’s challengers in the July 30 vote, demanded a halt to printing the papers on Wednesday, warning that “we will not have an election without a ballot paper that has been agreed upon”.
The poll will be the first election in the southern African nation without Robert Mugabe, who ruled Zimbabwe for 37 years before he was ousted by the military last year.
