MDC-T’s urgent High Court application to stop the commencement of voter registration as proclaimed by President Robert Mugabe is set to be heard today.
In its application, MDC-T argues that Mugabe should not have proclaimed voter registration dates before the Zimbabwe Electoral Commission (ZEC) procures Biometric Voter Registration servers which store data. MDC-T also argues that ZEC does not have enough BVR kits and has only received 400 kits which it is using for training purposes. ZEC is yet to receive 2600 kits. President Mugabe proclaimed that voter registration will start on from September 14 to January 15 next year.
