Zec Tells Opposition Parties To Back Off, Says We Will Reveal Details About Ballot Papers When Appropriate

The Zimbabwe Electoral Commission (Zec) has responded to calls from the opposition parties for it to reveal the suppliers of the ballot papers to be used in the 2018 harmonised elections. Zec said that that there was no law requiring it to involve political parties in the process and insisted that it will reveal the details at an appropriate time. In an email to NewsDay, ZEC said,

No, there is no legal provision which requires Zec to involve political parties in its procurement processes for the ballot paper and the printer…the commission will comply with the provision at the appropriate time as it has always done in all previous elections. There is not going to be any secrecy around the supplier and the ballots as the commission has an obligation to make these public in terms of the law.
