Addressing supporters in Bedford in the United Kingdom, MDC-T leader Nelson Chamisa said that the opposition would ensure that no elections took place unless reforms were implemented. He said that the opposition would not boycott elections, but would lead a shutdown of the nation to prevent elections from taking place.
People have said Chamisa has threatened to boycott elections if there is no agreement on a proper ballot. We will not boycott elections, but I have told (Zanu PF leader, President Emmerson) Mnangagwa that there will be no election without a proper ballot [paper]. We have the people and if we make the call, the country will come to a standstill and that we can do.
We are not joking about this. It is a matter of life and death. We will not go into an election without an agreement on what type of election we are going to have. We still have three months, but there must be political will.
