EU Deploys 44 Observers Ahead Of Zim Polls
The European Union Election Observation Mission (EU EOM) has reportedly deployed 44 long-term observers throughout the country ahead of the harmonized elections on July 30 over the weekend.
High Representative for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy and Vice-President of the European Commission Federica Mogherini said the Zimbabwean elections were key for the future of Zimbabwe.
“Zimbabweans can count on the strong support of the European Union and of the international community. Its stability and economic growth are key for the entire region and for the European Union as well. I am confident that the mission under the leadership of chief observer Mr Brok will make an important contribution to this electoral process,” she said.
Chief observer of the EU EOM to Zimbabwe Brok said the elections, to be held under a new electoral framework, represented an important step in the country’s political transition.
“The 2018 elections are an opportunity to strengthen Zimbabwe’s democracy and it is important they are peaceful, inclusive, transparent and credible. The EU EOM is here to observe in an impartial and professional manner and I am confident that this mission can make an important contribution to enhancing further the quality of the electoral process,” he said.
The team is to stay in the country until the completion of the electoral process and then prepare a comprehensive final report.
