ZEC Prints Sample Ballot Paper With 129 Political Parties

Zimbabwe Electoral Commission (ZEC) chairperson, Justice Priscilla Chigumba said they printed a sample to see if it is possible to print a ballot paper with a list of more than 129 political parties, which have notified the commission of their intention to participate in the elections.

Said Chigumba:

There has been concern from the public on how we’ll handle the high number of political parties and prospective candidates for the forthcoming elections. We’ve printed a sample of the ballot paper with all the 129 parties that have so far indicated their intention to participate in the elections. It’s therefore possible to have all the parties appearing on the ballot paper although it’s going to be in form of a booklet. We’re talking of more than 100 political parties but the final figure will be determined by how many of them meet the requirements at the nomination court. The number that we have now, which is likely to increase is not the measure of those going to participate given the rigorous vetting process done by the nomination court. We, however, printed a sample of the ballot paper with the current number so that we’re prepared.
