Statement on the Proclamation of the 2018 Harmonised Zimbabwe Election dates
ZSF has noted the Zimbabwe presidential proclamation which sets the election nomination date as the 14th of June 2018 and the plebiscite date as the 30th of July 2018. The ZSF wishes the people of Zimbabwe well in the coming elections. The solidarity movement is cognisant of the democratic challenges that have dogged Zimbabwe in the past. The violent and disputed election of 2008 and the questions related to the integrity of the 2013 process have left Zimbabwe with a democratic deficit. Efforts to break from this tainted past must be applauded. The ZSF welcomes the public statements attributed to the President of Zimbabwe Emmerson Mnangagwa that recognise the imperative of a credible, free and fair election.
