ZEC: New voters won’t vote in March by-elections

ZEC: New voters won’t vote in March by-elections. ZEC Chairperson, Justice Priscilla Chigumba, said the Electoral Act stipulates that those eligible to vote for local authority elections are those who have registered before the death or recall of the councillor.

The Zimbabwe Electoral Commission (ZEC) says citizens who currently registering to vote will are not eligible to vote in the council by-elections set for 26 March 2022.

She said for the National Assembly by-elections, the voter’s roll closes two days after the proclamation of election dates by the President. Chugumba said the current voter registration will be used for the delimitation exercise ahead of the 2023 harmonised elections. She said:

The Electoral Act states that those eligible to vote for local authorities are those who have registered before the death or recall of the councillor. This is why we are going to have different voters’ roll in the by-elections for local authorities since councillors were recalled on different days.

On the House of Assembly, the voter’s roll closes two days after the proclamation of election dates by the President. This is what people must know and we are going to educate the electorate at different intervals.

The by-elections are mostly a result of MDC-T leader Douglas Mwonzora’s recall of MDC Alliance’s elected officials, accusing them of joining a rival party – the MDC Alliance led by Nelson Chamisa.

The vacant National Assembly seats are Pumula, Nkulumane, Epworth, Gokwe Central, Glen Norah, Harare Central, Highfield East, Highfield West, Kuwadzana East, Mufakose, St Marys, Kambuzuma, Harare East, Dangamvura Chikanga, Mutasa South, Marondera Central, Chivi South, Binga North, Mkoba, Mbizo, Kuwadzana, Glen View North, Marondera East, Murewa South, Mwenezi East, Tsholotsho South, Kwekwe and Mberengwa South.
