We Will Not Boycott Elections, We Will Stop Elections Instead: Chamisa Speaks On Reforms

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.

Said Chamisa,

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.

  1. How can one stop elections when he is not the President it means his supporters will stop those who want to go and vote and that can only be achieved through intimidation or VIOLENCE the international community is watching we are watching this man’s demands are not realistic people will go and vote

  2. Also the world is watching if there are NO meaningful electoral reforms before the elections. We can not legitimise the junta by taking part in flawed elections. MDC will simply boycott the elections and we will see how the junta will legitimise itself. Mugabe tried it in 2013 and five years there is NO legitimacy unless with one party states like Russia and China.
