Ballot Paper design favours Mnangangwa
THE Nelson Chamisa led MDC-T has sensationally claimed that the Zimbabwe Electoral Commission has designed ballot papers for the 30 July polls in a way that gives advantage to President Emmerson Mnangagwa and Zanu-PF.
Chamisa’s chief election agent Jameson Timba told journalists in Harare on Monday that the provisional voters is comprised on persons aged more than 150 years while some have the same identity particulars.
Timba said on Saturday, Zec restricted them 20 metres from where the ballot paper for the elections were being printed and did not allow them to analyse its specimen.
As a result, Timba said, they were reduced to “tourists” during the printing demonstration.
“The layout was designed to benefit one principal who is Zanu PF candidate ED Mnangagwa,” said Timba who went on to say that only Mnangagwa has an idea on what is being printed.
Timba said their treatment on Saturday was a pointer that the country would not have free and fair elections.
“In this regard we will be calling for the convening of the multiparty liaison committee to chart the way forward so as to have a transparent process of ballot printing,” said Timba.
