The Zimbabwe Electoral Commission (ZEC) has told local activist group Concerned Citizens Support Network of Zimbabwe (CCSNZ) that it has no copy of the 2013 voters roll. This follows a request to the election body by (CCSNZ). In a letter sent to the group, ZEC stated:
Your letter dated 8 June 2017 regarding the above subject matter is hereby acknowledged.
We do not have a copy of the voters roll used in the 2013 general elections. Accordingly, we regret to advise that we are unable to accede to your request.
In an interview with New Zimbabwe, CCSNZ said:
We refuse to support an election without a pre-inspected voters roll and make it clear that we are in agreement with the fact that residence requirements set forth by ZEC disenfranchise citizens as some groups in society would not meet those requirements.
