30 000 voters reject Thokozani Khupe’s MPs. ZEC confirmed receiving the voters’ objections as Chief Elections Officer Utoile Silaigwana said:

30 000 voters reportedly responded to ZEC’s call to lodge their complaints should they have any objections in letting the elections body replace elected MDC Alliance legislators with nominees of a rival faction, The Daily News on Sunday reports.

We have received the volumes of objections, but as you might be aware, the closing date for their receipt was yesterday (Friday), so we have not gone through them as yet. We have to verify to see if they were submitted in terms of the electoral law. If they are valid, there is a provision to disqualify someone from occupying the seat.

According to the electoral act, ZEC is supposed to review the objections, and is there are no valid reasons for objecting ZEC will conclude that there are no grounds for objecting the candidature:

Having considered every objection received and have found that there are valid grounds for objecting to the candidature, afford the political party concerned to make representations on the matter.

If, having considered any representations of the political party received in terms of subsection (7)(b), the Commission is still of the view that there are valid grounds for objecting to the candidature, the Commission shall proceed in accordance with subsection (4)(a), and subsections (5), (6) and (7) shall thereafter apply until a qualified person is identified to fill the vacancy concerned,

Khupe had nominated herself and 15 other people to replace the legislators she recalled from parly.
