No by-elections to be held this year. This comes as the Zimbabwe Electoral Commission has set December 5 as a possible date for local authorities and national assembly by-elections.

Government has ruled out the holding of by-elections this year due to coronavirus restrictions.

Parliamentary and Legal Affairs Minister Ziyambi Ziyambi said it’s not possible to have by-elections this year. He said he did not know where ZEC got the December 5 dates from because the President is the one who proclaims the dates.

However, speaking at a meeting organised by the Election Resource Centre recently, ZEC chairperson Priscilla Chigumba said that the nomination court is set for October 23.
