Minimum Presidential Age Is Set To Be Increased
Zanu Pf is reportedly contemplating on using its two thirds majority to effect a constitutional amendment raising the minimum age requirement for presidential aspirants from 40 years to 55 years.
If passed, this move will be a big blow to MDC Alliance leader Nelson Chamisa who lost to Zanu Pf candidate Emmerson Mnangagwa in a tightly contested election.
Chamisa is currently contesting the presidential results at the constitutional court,claiming that he won the election and ZEC manipulated the results of the election in favor of his rival Emmerson Mnangagwa.
Meanwhile, president-elect Emmerson Mnangagwa has also challenged Chamisa on his vote-rigging claims at the Constitutional Court (ConCourt), setting the stage for what seems to be an epic legal battle.
Mnangagwa, in his founding affidavit submitted to the ConCourt courtesy of his 12-member legal team, trashed Chamisa’s application, saying it was not bona fide, but was a tactic meant to delay his inauguration as the duly-elected President and to also find an opportunity to make a political statement in court.
