ZEC extends voters’ roll inspection
Harare (New Ziana)-The Zimbabwe Electoral Commission (ZEC) on Monday said it has extended by a day, the voters’ roll inspection exercise, which opened on Saturday and had been set to end on Wednesday.
“The voters’ roll inspection exercise has been extended to 1 June 2023. ZEC is calling upon members of the public to visit inspection centres where they indicated they will vote at only, and not at any inspection centre,” it said.
A total of 11 289 inspection centres have been set up in all the country’s 10 provinces for the crucial exercise.
The voters’ roll inspection is one of the processes that precede the country’s harmonised elections, which are due not later than August this year, according to the national Constitution.
Zimbabwe has over 5.8 million registered voters who are expected to cast their ballots in the forthcoming harmonized elections.
President Mnangagwa has indicated that proclamation of the dates for the much-awaited polls is imminent.
On Sunday President Mnangagwa checked for his name in the voters roll at Sherwood Primary School in Gweru, the Midlands province where he is registered to vote and called on all prospective voters to also go and do the same.
