Addressing journalists at an election reporting workshop in Gweru last week, Zimbabwe Electoral Commission (ZEC) voter education director Mr Taurayi Gavi said 118 political parties have so far registered to participate in the 2018 elections.
He added that ZEC has not started screening if all 118 parties meet the required standards to compete in the 2018 elections. Said Gavi:
To date, we have 118 political parties that have written to ZEC expressing willingness to take part in the forthcoming elections. I would like to believe more are coming. We might have to accommodate all the 118 parties on a single ballot paper if they meet the required standards to contest.
