Zimbabwe Electoral Commission reviews suspension of electoral activities

By Wallace Mawire

Following the suspension of all electoral activities by the Zimbabwe Electoral Commission(ZEC) in response to measures announced by HE President Emmerson Mnangagwa to curb the spread of the Covid-19 pandemic and the subsequent review of the level one lockdown to level two, the Zimbabwe Electoral  Commission will conduct activities that do not violate lockdown measures using skeletal staff, according to a statement.

 It is reported that this is in line with a Covid-19 Electoral Practice Policy that is being finalised by the commission whose finer details will be announced soon.

The policy will guide electoral staff, the electorate and other stakeholders on how to conduct themselves before, during and after electoral processes to prevent health risks.

The commission also said that it would like to remind the public that those electoral activities that require gatherings will remain suspended to avoid violating lockdown measures currently in place.
